For Day 3, Week 3 of BM #42, check this awesome snack which is healthy and addictive. The subtle hint of salt, lightly sweet with the crunch of almonds, makes this a very interesting snack.
It is ideal to pack for the kids' school snack boxes or even to take it to work. Have a small box full of these in the car for emergencies :). But dieters out there, keep in mind the calories they can pack.
Oh! This reminds me that I need to make another batch for my little one's birthday party this evening..
Recipe adapted from here
Almonds 2 cups
Honey 3 Tbsp
Sugar 3 Tbsp
Water 2 Tbsp
Oil 2 tsp (I used Olive Oil)
Salt 1/2 tsp (I used sea salt)
Cinnamon, powdered 1/2 tsp
Nutmeg, powdered 1/4 tsp
Method Of Preparation -
Arrange all the almonds in a single layer on a baking tray.
Put it in the cold oven and set the temperature to 350 °F.
While the almonds are in the oven, blend salt, sugar, cinnamon powder and nutmeg powder and set aside.
Stir the almonds a couple of times until the temperature in the oven reaches 350 °F.
Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a wide pan, boil water, oil and honey. After the mixture comes to a rolling boil, add the almonds and stir well so that the almonds are coated with the honey mixture.
After the liquid is fully absorbed by the almonds (typically 4-5 minutes), remove from fire, sprinkle the sugar-salt mixture and mix well so the almonds are coated with the sugar-salt mixture uniformly.
Keep a baking tray lined with parchment paper and transfer the honey roasted almonds on to the tray and spread in a single layer.
Let them cool for a few minutes before transferring into an air tight container.
