Candied Almonds

Updated: Feb 13, 2023

Have you ever had the urge to whip up a quick snack and struggled to think of something that super simple and speedy make without creating too much mess?

I hear you! This is recipe is a staple for my love of snacking and the best part is that I've traded some of the sugar for sweetener to keep this recipe 'guilt free'.

Why I made this recipe: Almonds are a fantastic source of protein and fats however a handful can be pretty boring and dry. Supermarket candied almonds are packed full of sugar so switching to sweeteners is always a "no brainer" in my eyes
