Let's pumpkin spice everything!  Why not?  It's delicious, and shouldn't be reserved for only lattes and desserts.  Snacks, like my Pumpkin Spiced Almonds, can benefit from the flavours as well; don't you agree?

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almonds, unsalted, natural
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Whisk together the maple syrup, salt, and pumpkin spice.  Set aside.  Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  • Add the almonds to a large skillet and turn the heat to medium-high.  
  • Immediately pour the maple syrup mixture over the almonds and stir to coat.
  • Continue to stir - never stopping - until the liquid is absorbed and/or evaporated.  DO NOT let the almonds sit still in the pan.  DO NOT walk away from the pan.  Your almonds will burn so quickly.
  • Once the liquid is gone, immediately pour the almonds out onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.  Spread them out into a single layer and leave to cool and dry for two hours.
  • Once dried, pile into a snacking bowl or transfer to a food-safe container or bag.  Will keep for fresh for 7 days.

Notes

One serving is equal to 1/4 cup.
