Merry Christmas Eve! I know everyone is getting ready for the festivities starting tonight, but I had to drop in and wish everyone a Happy Holiday and offer up a quick and healthy snack to carry you through them.
These almonds have just the right amount of spice to them and are great for munching on while visiting friends and family. They take no time to prep and bake and can even be made before you head out tonight!
I must keep this short and sweet because where I’m staying has very limited internet. I will leave you with a few pictures of the ice storm we got here in Ontario, one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. It will definitely be a white (and icy) Christmas here this year!
3 cups raw almonds
3 tbsp egg whites
3 tbsp fancy molasses
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy. Whisk in all ingredients, except almonds, until mixed well.
