Am-ah-zing almonds

When I received word that we’d be bringing food to work, my first thought was “almonds.”

So, I toasted some almonds with a little sugary goodness last night. Took a little longer than expected because I didn’t follow one step of the instructions.

But, wow. They were am-ah-zing! (I collected testimonials from several coworkers today-I’m proud of my skillz).

Per request, I decided to post the recipe (which I found on Pinterest).

Start with this:

Get all of this stuff.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups whole raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Do all of these things.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a 10×15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl beat the egg white and vanilla until frothy but not stiff.
  3. Add the nuts, and stir until well coated.
  4. Mix the sugars, salt and cinnamon into the nut mixture. Toss to coat.
  5. Spread evenly on the prepared pan.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Allow to cool. Store nuts in airtight containers.

And then you get this!

Ok, I scooped out an entire bowl to take to work. I didn’t plan to write a post until about an hour ago. But don’t they look yummy?
