A note about soaking and dehydrating:
Nuts that have not been soaked contain enzyme inhibitors that can cause uncomfortable digestion. Once they are soaked they are much easier to digest and their nutrients are easier to assimilate. This is the optimal way to eat nuts, however if you are pressed for time or don’t have a dehydrator, it is perfectly okay to use unsoaked walnuts in this recipe!
Soaking and Dehydrating Nuts:
- Place Nuts in a large bowl and cover with water
- Let soak overnight. Rinse well.
- Drain and dehydrate at a temperature no higher than 130 degrees until completely dry (about 12 hours depending on the nut)
