Rhubarb Crisp with Walnuts, Member LolaMarieBrown

There's been an omission here. Where are the walnuts? No mention is made of them. How much to add? 1/2 cup? This is the same recipe as the regular rhubarb crisp. Note: You can easily make this dessert low-carb by using whey protein for the flour and Splenda or other sweeteners for the sugar. Enjoy.
