Baked Spiced Almonds



Thinking of ways to include more protein in your diet. Think Almonds. Almonds are concentrated in protein. A quarter-cup contains 7.62 grams-more protein than is provided by the typical egg, which contains 5.54 grams. This is an easy breezy snack, good to eat, great for health, low in sugar and high in protein. 


This is another very interesting recipe I found in the Eating well Magazine. If you are craving for a spicy, crunchy snack, try this quick and easy snack.


Preparation Time - None
Cooking Time - 30 Minutes
Serves - 4


Ingredients


Whole Almonds - 2 Cups


Coconut Oil - 2 Teaspoon


Curry powder - 2 Tsp


Salt - 1/2 Tsp


Red Chili Powder/Cayenne Pepper - 1/4 Tsp or to taste


Method


1) Preheat Oven to 300 Degrees Fahrenheit.


2) Line a baking tray with parchment paper.


3) Combine Almonds, Oil, Curry powder, Salt and Red Chili powder and toss to coat well.


4) Bake for 25 Minutes until lightly toasted.


5) Transfer to a wide mouthed bowl and cool.
