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.
