Adapted from Taste for Life Magazine, November 2009
Makes 2 cups
|2 cups NOW Real Food® Natural Almonds*|
|1 tsp. Ellyndale Organics™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil*|
|1/2 tsp. NOW Real Food® Organic Maple Syrup*|
|1/4 tsp. sea salt|
|1 tsp. cinnamon|
|1/4 tsp. ground ginger|
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Toss almonds with olive oil, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, and ginger until evenly coated. Spread evenly on a sheet pan.
- Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until aromatic and slightly browned. You’ll know they’re done when you can smell them. Almonds will become crispy as they cool.
Variations: To 2 cups of toasted almonds, add 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips, 1/4 cup dried cherries, and 1/4 cup NOW Real Food® Pumpkin Seeds*. For a more savory flavor, replace cinnamon and ginger with 1/4 teaspoon each of dried rosemary, sage, and thyme.
