Learn about our editorial process Print Walnuts and berries make a super healthy and delicious combination. Compared to other nuts, walnuts are the only tree nut containing a substantial amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is a plant-based omega-3 fatty acid. Plus they're packed with vitamins and minerals. Berries are also high in vitamins and minerals, plus they're rich in fiber and a variety of antioxidants that may have additional health benefits. Walnuts and berries are delicious when served together. Try a dollop of real whipped cream, or with a serving of smooth, creamy Greek yogurt. But you can do so much more with walnuts and berries. Take a look at these six simple recipes featuring walnuts and berries. The recipes are courtesy of California Walnuts. 1 Toasted Quinoa-Walnut Breakfast Sundaes California Walnuts This recipe is just loaded with good things. It starts with the walnuts and berries, but it also has quinoa, which is high in protein and fiber, and Greek yogurt, which is rich in protein and probiotics. Recipes 2 Blueberry Lemon Walnut Bread California Walnuts Homemade quick bread is versatile because it makes an excellent breakfast, snack, or dessert. While some varieties usually contain some sugar, as long as they're made with fresh ingredients with as little added sugar as possible, they're a great addition to a healthy diet. You could give it a fiber boost by using whole wheat flour. 14 Simple Ways to Increase Your Fiber Intake 3 Wild Blueberry Chutney California Walnuts This flavorful slightly sweet and savory chutney is a much better toast topping than plain old jelly. It tastes great on whole grain crackers with a few toasted walnuts, or it would make a great addition to baked or grilled chicken. 10 Superfoods to Eat Daily for Optimal Health 4 Walnut Blueberry Oatmeal Energy Bites California Walnuts Similar to oatmeal cookies, but with a major nutritional upgrade with whole wheat flour, blueberries, and olive oil. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but they're so easy to make. They're not too high in calories either—each energy bite has about 120 calories. 5 Walnut Berry Crumble California Walnuts Fruit crumbles tend to be a bit lower in calories than pies because there's no heavy buttery crust. And, in fact, this walnut berry crumble has only about 280 calories per serving. Perfect with morning coffee or as an after-dinner treat. Recipes 6 Walnut Raspberry Chocolate Tartlets California Walnuts It's always a good idea to include a little chocolate in any healthy dessert list. These delicious chocolate tartlets have so much flavor and texture, plus they're made with healthy ingredients. Best of all? They're only 250 calories each. 2 Sources Verywell Fit uses only high-quality sources, including peer-reviewed studies, to support the facts within our articles.
