Crunchy walnut energy balls

Everyone knows those days when energy levels drop and only a small snack can save the day. Imagine being able to get that much-needed energy boost without feeling guilty or ruining your diet plan. Doesn't that sound heavenly? For this easy recipe you will need one cup of organic walnuts, half a cup of rolled oats, five dates (pitted), two tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of vanilla extract. You will also need a food processor or a strong blender. First, put the walnut kernels in the food processor and process them into a coarse mass. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix everything together until well combined. Now, with clean hands, form small balls out of the mixture. Place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper and put them in the fridge for about 20 minutes - this will allow them to firm up. They are the perfect snack for between meals or after training.

Walnut granola bars

Let's start with the basic ingredients: organic walnuts, oat flakes, honey and dried fruits of your choice. The beauty of this recipe is its versatility. You can vary the ingredients and adapt them to your preferences. Almonds or cashews also go well with it. First, lightly toast the oat flakes in a pan without oil until they are golden brown. This is when they develop their full aroma. The walnut kernels are roughly chopped and mixed with the oat flakes. Then add the chopped dried fruits. The sweetness is provided by honey, which acts as a natural glue and holds everything together. The mixture is pressed evenly into a pan lined with baking paper and baked in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes. Once cooled, the bar can be cut into pieces. These are a perfect energy source for in between meals or as a breakfast to go.

Walnut chia pudding

This recipe is as simple as it is delicious. For one serving you need a handful of organic walnut kernels, two tablespoons of chia seeds, a cup of almond milk (or another plant-based milk of your choice), a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup for sweetness and a little vanilla extract for that certain something. The preparation couldn't be easier. First, place the chia seeds in your favorite bowl or glass and pour the almond milk over them. Stir well so that all the seeds come into contact with the liquid and let the mixture soak for about 15 minutes. In the meantime, you can roughly chop the walnut kernels. When the chia mixture has become a gel-like pudding, add the honey or maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir well. Finally, sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top and your walnut chai pudding is ready! This healthy snack can be enjoyed immediately, but it also tastes great after a night in the fridge. The pudding can be easily varied: add fresh fruit or try it with other nuts.

Walnut Granola

Start with 2 cups of rolled oats and 1 cup of organic walnuts. Roughly chop the seeds to release their natural oils and enhance their flavor. Add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of cinnamon to bring out the flavor of the walnuts. 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup provides sweetness. This natural sugar makes the granola nice and crispy and gives it a pleasant sweetness without the use of refined sugar. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Preheat your oven to 160 degrees and cover a baking tray with baking paper. Then mix the honey or maple syrup with the dry mixture until everything is well coated. Spread the mixture evenly on the baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Stir occasionally so that the granola browns evenly. Allow it to cool completely before placing it in an airtight container. This means your walnut shrimp will stay crispy and delicious for up to two weeks. This can be used in many ways: as a topping for your yoghurt, mixed with milk like muesli or simply on its own as a snack.

Walnut protein smoothie

To prepare this delicious snack you only need a few ingredients. You'll need 1 banana, 1/4 cup raw organic walnuts, 1 cup of your preferred milk (almond milk or oat milk are great options), 2 teaspoons honey or maple syrup for sweetness, and a pinch of salt. For an extra protein kick, add a scoop of protein powder. The preparation process is simple and quick. First you need to cut the banana into pieces and put them in a blender along with the walnuts. Then add the milk, protein powder and honey or maple syrup. Mix everything well until it reaches a smooth consistency. The result is a delicious and nutritional smoothie! The walnuts not only provide a nutty taste but also healthy fats and antioxidants. The banana provides natural sweetness and fiber while the protein powder helps you stay full.

Homemade walnut crackers

You need 200g wholemeal flour, 100g ground organic walnuts, a pinch of salt, 2 tablespoons olive oil and around 120ml water. First put the flour in a bowl and add the ground walnuts and salt. Mix well, then pour in the olive oil. Gradually add water and knead everything into a smooth dough. Roll out the dough thinly on a floured work surface. Use your favorite cookie cutters or simply cut the dough into squares or rectangles. Place the shaped crackers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the crackers at 180 degrees Celsius for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow them to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.

Walnut hummus

Take 200g cooked chickpeas, 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste), the juice of half a lemon, 2 cloves of garlic, salt to taste and of course 50g organic walnuts. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process into a smooth paste. While mixing, slowly add about 50ml of olive oil to improve the consistency. The walnuts not only give the hummus a wonderful taste, but also increase its nutritional value. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, making them a great superfood. This can be served with vegetable sticks or whole grain bread - perfect as a healthy snack in between or as an appetizer at your next dinner evening! You can store it in the fridge for up to a week - if it survives that long!

Apple and walnut salad

First you need a crisp apple. Choose a variety that you like best. Cut it into thin slices or cubes - whichever you prefer. Then take a handful of organic walnut kernels. Walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. You can chop them roughly or leave them whole. Then you need some greens. Lamb's lettuce or rocket are ideal for this. They give the salad a pleasant bitterness that harmonizes perfectly with the sweetness of the apple. To make the dressing, mix olive oil, lemon juice, honey and mustard together. This gives your salad a sweet and sour note and makes it even more delicious. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and voila! Your apple and walnut salad is ready to enjoy! A tip: If you want your salad to taste even more refreshing, add a few mint leaves.
