Pumpkin Spiced Almonds

Clearly it is fall and I cannot get enough pumpkin or apple recipes in!!

When I first saw pumpkin spice nut recipes online I knew I just had to make them. I am so very glad I did. These almonds are a perfect healthy snack – if you can stop at just a small handful that is! They would also work well for a little nibble during fall entertaining and even gift giving.

Why Healthy

  • Almonds provide a good source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, protein and are an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, manganese, and a good source of fiber, copper, phosphorous, and riboflavin.

1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Pumpkin Pie Spice:
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients together until the almonds are wet and well coated.
