Snacks are such an important meal in our routine and we all tend to veer towards chips and drinks that are loaded with fats and calories. So why not go healthy this season and opt for honey roasted almonds instead. They are not only nutritious but they also have a crunchy texture with great taste. They can be found in any supermarket but the best way to make sure that what you are eating is healthy is to make your own.

Homemade Honey Roasted Almonds

Ingredients
  • Almonds, 2 cups (with skin)
  • Honey, 2 tbsp.
  • Salt, ½ tsp.
  • Granulated sugar, ¼ cup
  • Water, 2 tbsp.
  • Almond oil, 2 tbsp.
Method

Place the almonds on a baking sheet and roast them in a moderately hot oven for 10 to 15 minutes. When the almonds have changed color to a dark tan, remove them from oven and set aside to cool. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the honey with water and almond oil. When this honey and oil mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat and add the roasted almonds into the saucepan. Stir with a wooden ladle for a few minutes and make sure that all the almonds are coated in the mixture. When all the mixture is absorbed by the almonds, transfer them to a bowl and toss in the sugar and salt. Mix them together and arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet. Allow it to cool and enjoy delicious roasted almonds.
