If you like, use cashews, pecans, or almonds instead of walnuts. Although nuts contain heart-healthy fats, these crispy and spicy niblets can become addictive, so we recommend portioning them into a small bowl or resealable plastic bag so that you don’t eat them all in one sitting. Serve them with crispy apple slices or pear to complete the snack.

  • 8 ounces walnuts (2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or as desired
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Each 2 tablespoon serving: About 105 calories, 2g protein, 3g carbohydrate, 10g total fat (2g saturated fat), 1g fiber, 2mg cholesterol, 58mg sodium
