Nuts are a great source of heart-healthy fat, fiber, and protein. Eating a serving (about 1/4 cup) of nuts everyday, especially if you’re eating them in place of an animal-based food like meat or cheese, is a habit we could all stand to practice. Plus, nuts happen to be delicious!
Coconut Honey Roasted Almonds are my latest nut obsession. Here’s how to make them.
- 3 cups raw almonds
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup shredded coconut
- 1 tsp oil
- ¼ tsp salt
- Place almonds in a mixing bowl. Add honey, oil, and salt and mix until all the nuts are well-coated.
- Spread out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and stir in coconut shreds.
- Let cool, then store in an air-tight container.
Note: as with all nuts, be sure to monitor your portion size. The calories add up quick! Aim for 1/4 cup, or about 20 almonds so you don’t overdo it on the calories.
