Pumpkin Spice Almonds

Before I get started let me say a couple things.  
One: Make sure you check your washer’s drain connector-thing-a-ma-bob.  It can get loose and then you will flood your house.  Thank God I have tile where it happnened.

Two:  Did anyone wonder why Mulan loved Prince Phillip in Once Upon A Time?  Umm…where the hell is Shang?  How did you not love him after this little number?  You have brought great dishonor to your family, Mulan.
And now back to our scheduled programming….
 

 I’ve been seeing pumpkin pie almond recipes on Pinterest, but I have to admit I haven’t actually pinned or looked at one.  I had the bad case of the munchies today and decided to make my own version.  I used the last of my cinnamon for this recipe, but I think it worked out.  How did I not notice I was low on cinnamon before?  This Glam Hungry Mom needs to go to the grocery store or Costco…stat!

I already set aside a few baggies of these goodies for some friends.  I usually only eat a handful of almonds with some chocolate or fruit, but I keep popping these in my mouth.  I don’t even want to know how many calories of almonds I have consumed.

Be warned.  Your house will smell bomb dot com while these are baking.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups raw almonds
  • 2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Directions:
  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  4. Spread coated almonds evenly on baking sheet
  5. Bake for 20 minutes
How flipping easy is that?!  I hope you guys enjoy this snack as much as I do.
