Spicy Cinnamon Roasted Almonds (Paleo)

Yesterday, I got to meet and answer questions for the next group of college students heading out to India. I can’t believe its coming up on a year since I’ve gone!

I am so insanely jealous of them! But, I got to hear updates on one of the schools we helped out in and heard that they now have running water, which is awesome!

Anyway, the questions from yesterday naturally led to conversation on food. Which reminded me of how I lived on roasted almonds for several days (See here for info). And then I realized that I never posted that recipe for said nuts. So here you go!

Spicy Cinnamon Roasted Almonds  (Paleo)

Spicy Cinnamon Roasted Almonds (Paleo)

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup raw almonds

1/2 tbsp avocado oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp cayenne

pepper

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine almonds and oil in a bowl, and then add in the rest of the ingredients. Spread onto a pan and bake in the oven for 12 minutes. Hear that sizzling in? It means DON’T PLACE DIRECTLY IN MOUTH! (You learn from experience 😉 )

  1. Great snack Deanna – you made me realise I’m not cooking my version at a high enough temperature!

    • Thanks! I’ve seen a lot of recipes roasting at low temperatures too, so I’m sure your way is just as fine- I’m just impatient when it comes to waiting, so I up the temperature and lower the time 😉
