Spiced Almonds

I don’t know about you, but I hate the fact that most delicious food is bad for you. No wonder we can’t stick to diets for very long. Luckily, that does not apply to this recipe of spiced almonds! They’re both delicious and nutritious!

I’ve been snacking on almonds a lot lately. But like anything, too much of a good thing can eventually get boring. In an effort to spice things up, I came up with this spiced almonds recipe. See what I did there?

When developing this recipe, I chose spices that I like. By all means, don’t feel like you have to use the same spices, feel free to substitute with spices that you love. I plan on doubling the amount of cayenne next time, but then again, I am seriously addicted to spicy food.

Instructions
  1. Measure out two cups of almonds and set aside. Mix all the spices in a small bowl.

  2. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet, if you don't have one, it's about time you did. I don't spend money on shoes, purses, or getting my nails done. I do, however, invest in anything that makes my time in the kitchen more productive and fun! Meanwhile, you can use whatever pan you have.

  3. Add the spices to the oil, and mix over medium heat for a few minutes, or until aromatic.

  4. Add almonds, and stir to coat them entirely with the spices. Cook over medium heat for a few minutes.
  5. Add the coated almonds to a foil-lined baking tray. I was in a hurry, and used the toaster oven, but the almonds were too crowded. I recommend using your oven instead. In other words, do as I say, not as I do!

  6. Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes on 250 F degrees. Allow the almonds to cool before diving in. Here's to healthy snacking!
