Almond Snacks


It's no secret that I love nuts - peanuts, almonds, monkey nuts, pistachios, walnuts, when I came across a recipe recently that souped up the humble almond it was a given that I would give it a go.  There are other recipes for elevating the humble nut into something special, including this recipe from Nigella that is a nod to the spicy nuts served in the Union Square Bar in New York.  This one uses just a few ingredients:

2 cups raw whole almonds
2 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt:
To Make:
Pre-heat oven to 350 F.  Mix all the ingredients together before placing on greaseproof paper on a baking tray.  Cook for 8-10 mins, stirring from time to time and keeping an eye on them so that they don't burn.  Allow to cool and a crisp glaze has formed over the nuts.
Then munch!
