spiced almonds

when i’m at work i am all about the snacking. my packed lunches have always consisted of a substantial (but still light) item with 2-3 graze-able things. these spiced almonds are perfect for that. i bet they’d make a good party snack too. i love the combo of the maple syrup and curry. not to mention, they’ll make your kitchen smell like fall.

2 cups raw almonds (or a combination of your favorite nuts)
1-2 T maple syrup (i go with 2 personally)
1/2 t curry powder
1/4 t cayenne pepper (i also like spicy, so dial this down if you’re not into that)
1/2 t dried rosemary
1/4 t kosher salt

preheat oven to 325 and prep a cookie sheet with baking spray.

put the almonds in a bowl, add the maple syrup and all the spices. using a spatula, stir it all up, making sure all the almonds are coated evenly. give it a few extra stirs so the spices distribute evenly.

spread almonds in a single layer on the cookie sheet. bake 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through. let cool and store in an airtight container.
