If you've never toasted nuts yourself, I urge you to do so.
Why? Because baking nuts changes their taste and texture - for the better! It enhances their flavor; making them less bitter and bringing out a rich, buttery taste.
I tend to love all nuts. However, there's something about toasted walnuts that I can't get enough of.

How to Roast Walnuts in the Oven
The hardest part about roasting nuts is paying close attention to the baking time. As, nuts can burn quickly.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine walnuts and avocado oil. Mix until the nuts are well coated.
Next, sprinkle the rosemary, salt and nutmeg onto the nuts. Mix again, coating the nuts with the spices.
Spread the walnuts out on a baking sheet so that they aren't overlapping.
Then, pop them in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. I recommend keeping a close look on the walnuts after the first 5 minutes of baking. Since every oven is different, yours may require more or less baking time. The nuts are done when they are golden brown. In addition, they will have a delicious, bold, buttery smell.
How Long do Roasted Walnuts Last?
