Sweet & Spice Almonds

Almonds are a great source of protein and what better way to eat them then toHave them loaded with all of your favorite Fall flavors. I roasted these almonds first then sugar, allspice, cardamom, allspice, and nutmeg are coated all over them. I first made these for the purpose of a diabetic awareness meeting, so I substituted cane sugar for a low calorie sweetener.

I have an idea to make these in different flavors, both sweet and savory, and have them for sale during the holidays. They are delicious and will be perfect as a gift or for yourself.

Makes 1lb of almonds.

Ingredients
1#whole almonds, blanched
1 oz canola oil
2 tsp cinnamon
1tsp allspice
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp ginger
stevia

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Toss almonds and oil together with spices. Spread a layer of the nuts in a sheet pan.
Roast in oven for 20 minutes until light golden brown.
While the almonds are still warm, sprinkle with a generous amount of Stevia and toss. Serve immediately or can be stores in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
