The black walnut has almost the same profile as an English walnut, however, the difference lies within the taste. When eating a black walnut, you may wonder if the walnuts have gone bad due to their scent and taste. But when black walnuts are incorporated into recipes like Grandma's Black Walnut Cookies they instantaneously become delicious.
Each bite has a nice cookie crunch. The cookies are sweet with an occasional bite of black walnuts that even out the sugar and bring forth some creaminess. The unique taste of the black walnuts also blends well with the oatmeal and gluten-free flours.
