Organic Activated Hazelnuts Whole
These raw activated hazelnuts are simply delightful to snack on with their creamy nut flavour and crunchy texture. These hazelnuts are soaked in water until they begin to sprout. They are then dehydrated at low temperatures (below 45°C) until they are about 10-15% lighter and really really crunchy.
They are rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain the integrity of cell membranes and skin by protecting them from harmful free radicals. They also have a high concentration of brain-healthy folate and protein. These whole activated hazelnuts are a versatile pantry staple for use in sweet and savoury recipes, as a base in many dairy-free recipes and a crunchy addition to trail mixes and breakfast bowls.
Hazelnuts are delicious eaten as they are or mixed with your favourite combination of additional nuts, seeds and dried fruits for a tantalising trail mix. With their unique taste and crunchy consistency they can be used in many recipes, such as these Ferrero Rocher Bliss Balls, this homemade healthy version of Nutella and many other recipes for raw bliss balls, cakes and slices. They can be roughly chopped and sprinkled as a crunchy topper on salads, curries, soups and stews, or ground down to make a fresh hazelnut butter. A favourite recipe using organic hazelnuts is homemade hazelnut mylk. Simply blend up 1L of water with a handful of hazelnuts, add a pinch of salt and your favourite sweetener then strain through a nut mylk bag or clean cloth. Hazelnut mylk has a mouth-watering creamy consistency, perfect for addition to a bowl of granola, muesli and porridge, or to add a yummy milkiness to smoothies. Hazelnuts can also make a useful base for pestos, dips and sauces as they are easy to blend with additional ingredients after being soaked for 12 hours or so.
