Product Description

Red walnuts have been around for only a few years, but their exceptional flavor and nutritional value has made them very popular fast. It’s essential to understand that this variety of walnuts is not genetically modified. It was created by the experts from the University of California by naturally grafting Persian red-skinned walnuts with the English variety.

The result is a large, hard-shelled walnut with beautiful ruby-red kernels that are both a bit oilier and more nutritious than their regular creamy brown cousins.

Red Walnuts from Food To Live ® are not only a tasty snack, they also make for a gorgeous garnish on all kinds of dishes.

Benefits of Red Walnuts

Red walnuts share the properties of their species, which means that they are also heart and brain-friendly. Some of the benefits you can get from eating them regularly include:

  • Improvement of the overall health.
    They provide you with essential omega 3 fatty acids, which are necessary to regulate the level of inflammation in the body. Research indicates that increasing your omega 3 intake reduces the risk of developing many dangerous diseases. Red walnuts are a very precious source of these vital elements for vegans and vegetarians who don’t eat fish.
  • Increased resistance to oxidation.
    Free radicals can damage any cell in the body, so we need antioxidants to protect ourselves from these dangerous particles. Red walnuts are packed with potent antioxidants. Most importantly, a study by the University of Pennsylvania proves that walnuts, in general, have the highest level of easily absorbable antioxidants among all edible nuts. You only need to eat about 6 of them a day to reduce the level of free-radical damage to the minimum.
  • Promotion of the nervous system health.
    Red walnuts are rich in manganese, a mineral vital for maintaining the overall health of the nervous system. Contrary to popular belief, eating them doesn’t improve your cognitive ability, but it helps protect your brain and ensure it functions at its best.

Nutritional Value

Red walnuts are extremely nutritious. They are particularly rich in:

  • Copper
  • Vitamin E
  • Manganese
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Iron

Eat them with care as they have a high calorie count.

Culinary Uses

You can eat red walnuts raw or roasted as they make amazing snacks. You can also sprinkle them on salads or use in baked goods and desserts.

The Healthiest Cookies EVER

The Healthiest Cookies EVER


Serves: 12

Cookies made with 100% whole food ingredients for a healthy treat anytime.


  • 1½ cups raw walnut halves
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted (about 12)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax or chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water)
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the dates and walnuts together until a crumbly texture is formed. Add in the salt, baking soda, vanilla and flax egg and process again until the batter is relatively smooth. Add in the chocolate chips and briefly pulse, just to combine.
  2. Spoon the batter onto a lined baking sheet, and use your hands to gently flatten the cookie dough. (Tip: Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking!) Bake at 350F for 12 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden. Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Serve immediately, and store the leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer for best shelf life. These cookies should last a week in the fridge, and a month or more in the freezer.

For the Bars: Line an 8-by 8-inch/20-by 20-centimeter baking pan with parchment or wax paper allowing some of the paper to hang over the sides.

Place the walnuts, raw cacao powder and salt in a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a sticky ball, about 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula as needed. Add the dried fruits, dates and honey and blend again until combined, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Press the mixture into the prepared pan with a rubber spatula. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes.

For the Frosting: Soak the dates in cold water for 20 minutes. Drain them and pulse them in a food processor along with the remaining ingredients until completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula as needed. Chill at least 2 hours.

For the Assembly: Pull the bars out of the baking pan using the excess paper and place them on a cutting board. Spread the top of the bars with icing and sprinkle with the chopped walnuts. Run a sharp knife under hot water and cut into 12 bars.

These bars, which are gluten-free, lactose-free, sugar-free, vegan and raw, can be stored in the fridge for five days.

Vegan Baklava

Vegan Baklava


  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar or Sucanat
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup walnut pieces –
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios –
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds –
  • 12 sheets phyllo dough, thawed overnight in the refrigerator
  • 1/2 cup light olive oil or melted coconut oil, plus more for the pan
  • 1 cup agave syrup (or, for a non-vegan version, honey)
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • Zest from 1 large lemon, preferably organic, removed in 1 long strip


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Oil a 13-by-9-inch baking pan.
  2. In a blender, blitz the brown sugar or Sucanat and cinnamon until powdery. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. In the blender or a food processor, pulse the walnuts until mostly finely chopped but still a bit chunky. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in 1/3 of the sugar mixture. Do the same for the pistachios and the almonds, dumping each mixture into a separate bowl.
  4. Cover the phyllo sheets with a large piece plastic wrap, then cover that with a towel that’s just barely damp. Remove 1 sheet and place it on a clean work surface. Brush half the surface with olive or coconut oil. Fold the sheet in half and place it in the prepared pan, then brush the top with oil. Repeat with 2 more sheets. Scatter the walnuts over the phyllo in an even layer. Repeat the layering with 3 more sheets phyllo, the pistachios, 3 more sheets phyllo, and the almonds. Layer the last 3 sheets phyllo on top.
  5. Using a sharp paring knife, score the top layer of phyllo sheets across the short side of the pan to form 6 strips. Next, score the phyllo diagonally from corner to corner, and then score parallel to that line 2 times on each side. (Or if that just completely confused you, just cut it into squares or triangles however you wish.) Bake for 40 minutes, until the phyllo is lightly golden and crisp.
  6. In a small saucepan, combine the agave syrup, water, and lemon zest. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then remove and discard the zest.
  7. Pour the syrup over the pastry. Cover the baklava and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Stored in the refrigerator, tightly covered, the baklava will keep for about 2 weeks.

Enjoy it!
