Yields: 2 cups

This healthy snack is really easy to make, and it’s great for tucking into lunch bags or even hostess gifts! The nuts will stay fresh for a few weeks if stored in an airtight container.

Ingredients

 Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cinnamon, Swerve, and salt.
  3. Place the almonds in a single layer on a rimmed baking tray, and bake at 350°F for 5 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven, shake it back and forth to move around the almonds, and continue to bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until the almonds are lightly fragrant and toasty.
  4. Immediately mist the nuts with the nonstick cooking spray. Shake the tray a few times, and spray again. Pour the nuts into the bowl with the cinnamon mixture, and toss until completely coated. Let the nuts cool completely to room temperature before transferring to an airtight container.
Notes: Powdered sugar may be substituted for the powdered Swerve sweetener. Powdered sweeteners are best because they “dissolve” better with the cinnamon and stick better to the almonds

If you can only find roasted salted almonds, that’s okay. Omit the salt, and bake the almonds for just 4 minutes.
