What’s not to love about hazelnuts? Hazelnuts (also called filberts) are often used in desserts and coffees because of their rich, distinctive flavor. Plus, they’re high in protein and fiber and low in fat!
When we learned that Frangelico was leading the charge to celebrate National Hazelnut Month for the first time this September, we put together a Heavenly Hazelnut Gift Basket full of our favorite hazelnutty goodies. Here’s what you’ll find in the basket:
- Raw hazelnuts
- Salted roasted hazelnuts
- In-the-shell hazelnuts
- Dark chocolate covered hazelnuts
- Raw Duchilly hazelnuts
- Chocolate butter crunch
- Hazelnut Supreme Coffee
Hazelnuts are chock-full of essential vitamins and minerals, like B vitamins, iron, and phosphorous. They’re also high in healthy polyunsaturated and mononunsaturated fats and contain oleic acid, which can raise levels of good cholesterol and lower levels of bad cholesterol.
There are simply so many ways to enjoy hazelnuts. Substitute hazelnut flour for wheat flour in scones and cookies. Drizzle your salad with hazelnut oil. Sprinkle chopped hazelnuts onto your cereal, yogurt, or ice cream!
Happy National Hazelnut Month, everyone! Join in the fun on Twitter with the hashtag #nationalhazelnutmonth.
