These are the perfect sweet, crunchy treat for just about ANY occasion. I made a big batch of these to take to the folks for Christmas, but hubby and I could not stay out of them....so I made another big batch! To say they are addictive is an understatement! They take virtually no time to make and it's as easy as pouring everything in a bowl and baking them. And while some recipes like this call for smothering the nuts in butter, I used an egg white to cut back on the fat.
Cinnamon Vanilla Almonds
I found this cute little tin at Michale's to put them in.
3 C raw almonds
1 large egg white
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C sugar
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat the egg white and vanilla together; add the almonds to coat. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, sugar and salt; combine with almonds and stir. Pour mixture on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool. Enjoy!!
Can you believe that's it?!? So easy!
These are great to give as a gift and it doesn't even have to be at Christmas time. (They were a pretty good car snack on the way to Christmas though!)
Give 'em a try!
