My kids are NUTTY about Fisher Nuts! Almonds, walnuts, etc…they love them all! And I love giving them nuts to snack on. While nuts may not be the lowest calorie food/snack item, they’re a great source of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. With plenty of flavor and crunch to go around, they’re also a great addition to healthy salads, yogurt and oatmeal.
I received some Fisher Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds to test out in some of my fun Nutty New Year’s Recipes. PLUS, they offered to send one lucky reader a bag to test out in their recipes.
Let’s start off with some healthy recipes from Fisher Nuts:
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups rolled oats (not quick cooking)
- ½ cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Walnuts Halves and Pieces, coarsely chopped
- ¼ cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds
- ½ cup flaked coconut
- ¼ cup unsalted pumpkin seeds
- ¼ cup unsalted roasted sunflower seeds

- ¾ cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds, toasted
- 3 cups shredded cabbage slaw mix
- 2 cups romaine lettuce, thinly sliced

- ½ cup cilantro, chopped
- 2 ½ cups rotisserie chicken meat, shredded
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

- 2 cups butter (make sure you use REAL butter…I tried this first with Blue Bonnet and the toffee didn’t come out right)
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (if you like sweeter chocolate, try milk chocolate chips)
- 1 cup finely chopped almonds
- In a large heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the butter, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the butter is melted. Allow to come to a boil, and cook until the mixture becomes a dark amber color, and the temperature has reached 285 degrees F (137 degrees C). Stir occasionally. (I don’t have a candy thermometer, so I just cooked for 15 minutes once the mixture started to boil.)
- While the toffee is cooking, cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- As soon as the toffee reaches the proper temperature, pour it out onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the chocolate over the top, and let it set for a minute or two to soften. Spread the chocolate into a thin even layer once it is melted. Sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate, and press in slightly. Putting a plastic bag over your hand will minimize the mess.
- Place the toffee in the refrigerator to chill until set. Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
My husband and his co-workers loved the toffee! Thanks Fisher Nuts! Now I will be healthy tonight and make a salad with sliced almonds on top!
