crunchy tamari seeds

This is an all time favourite snack. I recommend this as a snack to munch on while quitting smoking and for everyone as a generally delicious, healthy and satisfying snack. I always have people request that I make more of these almonds and was even told that I should sell them. Well, I'll leave that to someone else. But do enjoy. Your whole family will love these!

Almonds have so many benefits. They have been shown to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good cholesterol), they decrease after-meal blood sugar surges (decreasing the glycemic index of that meal), they lower risk of weight-gain, are cardio protective, they may prevent gallstones, they contain healthy flavonoids, antioxidants, vitamin E, B2, and contain loads of magnesium, manganese, and copper and are a highly concentrated source of protein. Go nuts! Enjoy almonds daily and reap healthy benefits!

1 lb whole unblanched almonds (with skins)
1/4 cup wheat-free tamari
1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
Optional: pinch cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 C)

Mix almonds with 1/4 cup tamari until thoroughly covered.

Remove pan from oven and place nuts back into same mixing bowl.

Spread nuts onto same pan and continue baking until almonds are toasted and dry, ~ 9 - 10 minutes.

If they begin to soften crisp them up again in the oven for 5 minutes.
