I am a huge snacker, so having some healthier alternatives are important. Almonds are a great source of protein, so this Cinnamon Roasted Almonds Recipe is a win-win. Sugar-free, yet flavorful too!
A couple of years ago I shared this recipe over with Lil Luna’s readers, but I thought today was a great time to share this yummy goodness with you!
I’m not exactly sure when my love for nuts emerged, but I do remember that my mom would set out a large bowl of mixed nuts in shells and nut crackers over the Christmas holidays. I loved cracking them open and discovering (and taste testing) all of the different kinds of nuts and flavors. Walnuts, chestnuts, hazelnuts, pecans and more!
Almonds became a favorite. If I don’t add flavor to raw almonds, you can usually find some of the 100 calorie packs in my pantry. They’re just great to have on hand when you’re on the run — you can toss a bag in your purse.
This Cinnamon Roasted Almonds Recipe not only makes a great snack, but it also makes a great homemade gift too! You can’t beat simple — and delicious.
