Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

I have had this “thing” for cinnamon lately..

IMG_0215I put it on my steel cut oats for some flavor, its the key to my Fruity MANCAKES and I love it in my morning shakeology to spice things up! Its one of those “free foods” and I keep finding ways to add it in! But my favorite taste of cinnamon easily has to be cinnamon roasted almonds!!!

Yeah, yeah, I know, not the cleanest thing out there but my oh my do I love them!!! We visited the Home Show in Pittsburgh last month and sampled some of those roasted almonds, pecans and cashews and I’ve been thinking of them ever since.

I know I’ll be able to snag them at the Buccos home opener…but I couldn’t wait for Monday! Aubrie was crafting during the little guy’s afternoon nap so I decided to whip these together!

I found some healthier recipes out there but I was going for taste and these hit the spot!!!

  • Roast for 1-1.5 hours, stirring every15/20 minutes.
  • Allow to cool and store in air tight container

NOTE: You will want to eat all of these…at once. I recommend portioning them into baggies or small containers to avoid the temptation. They’re DELISH!!!!
