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.
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom (ground)
1 T water
1 cup sliced almonds
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.
Coconut sugar gives these almonds a caramel-like flavor, and also has a lower glycemic index.
