Hi! How is everyone? We are still keeping super busy working on a new project and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. So exciting. We will soon be back in action here on the blog. In the meantime we have a little snack for you. These Sweet and Spicy Almond Clusters. I love to make a batch of these and sneak a ziplock in my purse for mindless snacking, or when you spend hours and hours adding up receipts for taxes and you don’t have the energy to make a real meal. I don’t recommend the latter. Really, these Sweet and Spicy Almond Clusters are perfect for those of you who love the sweet and spicy thing. Enjoy!
Sweet and Spicy Almond Clusters
Serves 3 to 4
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
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
2. Place all ingredients into a bowl and toss together until thoroughly combined.
3. Spread mixture evenly onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Stirring after 5 minutes. (keep an eye on the oven as the nuts can easily burn)
4. Remove from the oven and allow almonds to cool completely and a sweet and spicy hard glaze has formed over the almonds. Serve.
