For snacks on the go, you can’t beat this amazing powerhouse of nutrition. Walnuts are a superfood and the fats they contain are very healthy. Soaking them takes away the bitterness as well as the enzyme that makes them difficult to digest. Add some raisins to the mix and you’ve got a healthy snack you just can’t beat!
Soak the walnuts in a bowl of water (enough to allow them to float freely) overnight on your counter top. In the morning, drain off the water, rinse the walnuts, and strain well.
In medium storage container, combine the walnuts and raisins, put the lid on and shake well.
NOTE: You can make this in any amount, the above measurements are simply to give a guide and to get the nutrition data. HOWEVER, be sure you can eat it all within 3 days AND be sure to store these in the fridge. Soaked walnuts sour very quickly.
