We are bracing today for Hurricane Sandy to hit Pennsylvania. I wanted to whip up a bunch of snacks that didn’t require refrigeration just in case we lost power. Easily accessible and something everyone would eat. These are easy to whip up and you control the heat so you can make them more to your liking. I hope you enjoy these. Also, they will be perfect for the upcoming holidays. The smell of cinnamon is perfection!
2 cups of raw almonds
3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons of brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper (up to 2 tsp if you like more heat)
4 tablespoons of organic agave or maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or foil.
Into a bowl place your almonds. Then add cinnamon, sugar, cayenne, agave or maple syrup and vanilla. Toss to coat each nut. Spread the nuts evenly on the cookie sheet lined with a baking liner or parchment. Sprinkle with sea salt and then bake for 10 minutes. Remove and toss (they will be sticky) and then place back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool and store in a covered container.
