Maple Roasted Salted Almonds are a delicious holiday snack and a perfect DIY food gift. Vegan & Gluten-Free.
First of all, we’re wishing you a very merry Christmas and joyful holidays. Hope you get to spend the holidays with your loved ones, perhaps with a lovely festive meal or two.
We have already had one lovely family lunch just yesterday, followed by a walk into the city to see the Christmas decorations and market craft stalls. We were so full from the big lunch that we just had some roasted chestnuts and some roasted almonds, but the weather was beautiful and not at all cold. It was lovely.
Today I am in the kitchen again, working on some dishes for yet another lunch tomorrow.
But before I get cooking, I just wanted to share with you my own version of roasted almonds, that is a bit different than the bought ones.
These Maple Roasted Salted Almonds are just delicious! They don’t get hard as they go cold, and are therefore easier on your teeth. Plus the combination of sugar, salt, maple, olive oil, and cinnamon is fantastic!
The only problem? They will be gone in a second, so make sure to make a double batch!
These Maple Roasted Salted Almonds also make for a lovely homemade food gift, just perfect for the holidays.
