Whole-wheat walnuts bread
Walnuts are a versatile cooking ingredient that can be added to salads, pilafs, cookies, muffins, breads, cakes, and ice cream. Whole young nuts can be pickled in vinegar. Walnuts also can be pressed to make an
oil that is typically used in salads. Walnuts also have a variety of nonculinary uses. The shells are used as an antiskid agent for tires and as blasting grit. Ground nutshells are sometimes added to commercial spices as a filler. Nutritionally, walnuts are an excellent source of phosphorus, zinc, copper, and thiamin and a good source of iron and potassium. More than 70 percent of the fat comes from polyunsaturated fat. Toasting walnuts enhances their flavor, helps maintain crispness, and makes them easier to chop

As some of you know by now I like trying different combos when making bread. The idea of adding walnuts to bread I got it form a Low-fat recipes cookbook and adapted to my taste.I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour, left the margarine out, almost doubled the amount of walnuts and used milk instead of powdered milk which I hate baking with. 
Let's turn the oven on and start baking
