Spiced almonds, the perfect healthy snack to curb your snack cravings.
Servings: 8 1/4 cup servings
- 2 T olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. chipotle pepper
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 2 cups dry roasted almonds
Measure out two cups of almonds and set aside. Mix all the spices in a small bowl.
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.
Add the spices to the oil, and mix over medium heat for a few minutes, or until aromatic.
Add almonds, and stir to coat them entirely with the spices. Cook over medium heat for a few minutes.
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!
Bake in the oven for approximately 20 minutes at 250 F degrees. Allow the almonds to cool before diving in. Here's to healthy snacking!
