My daughter has been taking 12 almonds to school in her lunch bag everyday for the past 2 months. She eats them as a quick snack walking in between classes. So to change things up a bit for her, I made some tamari roasted almonds. She gave the new flavor a thumbs up!
Why 12 almonds? It’s a 2 PointsPlus snack
And I’d like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to Mrs. Hiles, Anna’s Community Period teacher at Bellarmine Prep. Thanks for reading my blog!
2 cups whole raw almonds
2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place almonds on a cookie sheet and toast in oven until they begin to brown and give off a nutty aroma (10 to 12 minutes).
Mix tamari and spices together in a medium Tupperware with a tight-fitting lid. Add nuts and shake until thoroughly coated. Return to oven to dry out, stirring as necessary (5-7 minutes). Store in a sealed jar.
