Hazelnuts are often overlooked for their nutritional value, but these healthy nuts provide a good amount of vitamin E and a healthy serving of monounsaturated fats in each 1/4 cup serving. Not only do hazelnuts have a healthy boost of protein, they are also very low in carbohydrates and naturally gluten free.
