This healthy snack recipe is great when you’re craving something sweet or salty. I like to keep a handful in my purse to encourage healthy eating all day long. 


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • Dash of cinnamon (optional)
  • Dash cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix almonds with tamari, which is a gluten-free soy sauce to satisfy any salty cravings.
  3. Add in 1 tsp maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon to satisfy a sweet tooth.
  4. Top with a dash of cayenne pepper if you’re craving something spicy or just want to curb your appetite until the next meal.
  5. Stir together until well combined. 
  6. Place on a baking sheeting lined with parchment paper and bake for 7 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly caramelized. 
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool before you storing in small air tight snack-size containers.  


Feel free to change up the seasoning to satisfy your own snack attacks.
