Maple & Pumpkin Spice Roasted Almonds

maple & pumpkin spice roasted almonds

 

It smells like fall, or maybe it smells like warm and toasty maple & pumpkin spice roasted almonds hot out of the oven. Who am I kidding, the two are synonymous; if those smells aren’t connected for you, then you should probably go make some asap!

 

These slightly sweet and salty almonds are a variation of the roasted pecans my step-mom makes every year–the same ones you smell at all the fall festivals. The recipe is written on an actual piece of paper, so you know it’s legitimate. I used roasted almonds instead of pecans because it’s what I had on hand, but this would be great with any nut! The crunchy glaze is made from a beaten egg white and sugar, but in proper dietitian fashion I reduced the amount of sugar in the recipe by half and subbed maple syrup for the white sugar. The maple syrup is a natural sweetener and gives the recipe a more complex flavor, and they are still plenty sweet!

    Well, poo. I did not see the disclaimer about roasted vs. raw and thought raw would be okay (I could not find unsalted roasted almonds). The almonds are in the oven now, so we’ll have to see if chewy is tolerable. meh.
