I always toast nuts too because it adds to the richness and nutty flavor of anything you make. I also toast oatmeal before cooking it. Got this idea from Martha Stewart several years ago and have been doing this ever since. Just toast the oatmeal in a skillet til golden brown stirring often, then make the oatmeal in the pan just as you always do. I use the 5 minute McCann's Oatmeal and I have to tell it' is fantastic this way. I also add 1 Tbsp. Toasted Wheat Germ. For an added treat, toast walnuts, smash them then add to the oatmeal with raisins or dried cranberries, cinnamon, brown sugar, and milk or cream. Tastes like a bowl of oatmeal cookies.
