Almonds are an excellent snack. They’re filled with protein, and healthful fats. But occasionally snacking on only plain nuts could be dull. And purchasing those pre-made mixes of mixed nuts or spiced nuts are really pricey. They’re really simple to do in your home, and I am certain that they’re far better for you.
I’ve been playing various nuts and marginally different mixes of my Indian Spiced Nuts recently, but wanted to try something fresh. My spouse likes it hot, so I presumed it was the ideal time to try them. They are great mixture of sweet and hot.
All these are super simple to throw together. There’s approximately 5 minutes of hands-on work, then bake them for 10, let them cool and you’re finished. I just was able to get a little handful of them prior to the vanished to my husband’s work. He likes to shoot them, so he’s healthful snacks in his desk during the day. These are good to have on hand for snacks, or even to wear in your vacation appetizer table.
