Roasted Cinnamon-Sugar Almonds

Sep 1, 2019Recipes


For those of you who prefer nuts that are sweet, I made a cinnamon-sugar almonds recipe. This is great if you have a sweet craving and want something healthier than chocolate or cookies!


The fibre and protein in the almonds will keep you full longer. The sugar will satisfy that sweet craving!

The egg white actually helps the sweet mixture stick to the almonds.
