This basic flavor combo can be changed-up to include your favorite items or what ever is in season. I have a large tub of granola in the pantry which continues to grow, change and reflect the snacks we are enjoying! Just a few chips left in that bag? Toss them in. Kids opened box of cereal but not overly thrilled with it? Mix it in!!! We often find cereal is a great snack dry even when we don’t like it swimming in milk. [Read more…]
Crock Pot Spiced Almonds
I love the bags of almonds sold at the convenience stores but I don’t like the price or the sugar! I make them at home with Splenda. They are not quite the same, but close enough to meet the snack craving. If you use the Splenda baking blend, you will get the crispier coating more like the sugar coated ones. Either way, they are awesome!
4 Cups almonds (I prefer raw but have used unsalted roasted)
4 Tablespoons butter
1/3 Cup Splenda (Sugar works just as well)
2 Teaspoons cinnamon or apple spice
½ Teaspoon salt
Place nuts in crockpot
Melt butter and mix in the splenda, cinnamon/spice and salt
Drizzle the butter mixture over the almonds and stir to coat
Cook on low for about 2 hours
Spread out on foil or parchment paper to cool – if you can keep out of them!
