tamari almonds

30 May

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!

Tamari Almonds

  • 2 cups whole raw almonds
  • 2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • pinch cayenne

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.

    Hmmmm sounds good, I’ll have to have Alli try one to see if she likes it. I’m always looking for “walking snacks” for her too.
