Ich liebe haselnüß — sehr lecker! In my opinion, hazelnuts are the most decadent nut. Perhaps its because I associate them strongly with chocolatey treats like Ferrero rochers, Baci kisses, and Nutella. Great news for you chocolate-hazelnut addicts — hazelnuts have some pretty awesome health benefits, so make a few extra batches of my Homemade Nutella 😉
Some things hazelnuts do really well:
Provide monounsaturated fats important in regulating cholesterol and overall cardiovascular health .
Contain lots of fiber. Good news for your bowels! No need to buy those sugary fiber bars, just eat some nuts.
Rich in manganese and copper – these minerals are important for bone health (among many other things!).
Rich in vitamin E – antioxidant functions that fight off free radicals in your body (free radicals are linked to causing cancer).
