Along with the flavor, you’ll also love how easy these Cardamom Spiced Almonds are to make! All you’ll need is a skillet, sliced almonds, coconut sugar, cardamom, and about 15 minutes.

This recipe uses coconut sugar for 2 reasons. First off, coconut sugar lends a caramel-like flavor, which accents the cardamom and almonds beautifully. Second, coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than traditional sugar, meaning it is less likely to spike your blood sugar. This is because of the high amount of fiber in coconut sugar.

We like using coconut sugar in recipes because it’s a healthier, more natural alternative to white sugar. It’s also considered paleo friendly.

Cardamom Spiced Almonds add a show-stopping finish to many a dish, and are also great by the handful! Sweetened with coconut sugar, they're also a healthy snack. 

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1/4 tsp cardamom (ground)

1 T water

1 cup sliced almonds

Instructions

Line a cooling rack with parchment or wax paper.

In a medium skillet, whisk coconut sugar, cardamom, and water.

Heat over medium-high heat just until sugar is dissolved.

Add almonds and cook, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. You should be able to see sugar granules coating the almonds which will give them a grainy look. Watch carefully so they don't burn.

Remove from heat and spread onto parchment to cool.

Eat as a snack or top salads or coconut rice.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 month.

Notes

Coconut sugar gives these almonds a caramel-like flavor, and also has a lower glycemic index.
