1 1/2 cups almonds
1/2 cup pure Grade B maple syrup
1 tablespoon Earth Balance dairy-free butter
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon chili powder (optional to add spice)
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
Coat a baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray and bake nuts in a single layer for 10 minutes; remove to cool slightly.
Heat maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly; bring to a low boil, and stir in butter. Add nuts, and stir until coated; let cool. Combine cinnamon and chili powder (leave out if you don't want it spicy) in a bowl.
Remove nuts from the maple mixture with a slotted spoon, and toss in the spice mixture. Lay nuts on a baking sheet, and sprinkle with a little sea salt; let dry. Store in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around health-palooza with ways to incorporate organic products into your home & beauty cabinet. I also include tips on spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. For more of my story you can click here.
