13 Amazing Recipes Using California Nuts

I love how nuts and seeds can be used in almost any dish.  

They are diverse, crunchy and offer such a wide range of flavors.  

Bonus:  They are NUT-tritious 😉

They can be the main ingredient or the finishing touch to top off an amazing dish.

From almonds, to pecans, walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, there is something for everyone!

We’ve rounded up some of the best recipes on the web for you to enjoy.  

Take a recipe or two this week and discover a wonderful way to incorporate these nutritious gems into your menu.

 

I made this delicious California Nut Bark a few years ago and it’s still on my regular rotation

 

Fiery Candied Walnuts. Soooo good!

These Fiery Candied Walnuts are the perfect spicy snack for gameday.
