I am nut for nuts! Truly! I love to toast peanut butter on top of the waffle to bring out the nuttiness and I eat raw almonds as one of my sources of protein (since I am a vegetarian). But my mom, she favors roasted over raw nuts. So to cater to her palate, I decided to bake a homemade version instead of getting the by the pound from Whole Foods. Not only I saved a lot of money, but I got to control the quality of the ingredients as well.
For this bowl of roasted almonds, I used maple syrup, 2 tablespoon of olive oil and some sesame seeds. Mix everything together, spread the almonds out and bake at 350 degree F for approximately 10 minutes. Remember to check on the nuts so they are not overdone, which might sneak up on you. Lastly, I sprinkled some coconut flakes for flavor and color. Once you start to eat them, you just cannot stop!
