Recipe: Homemade Granola - Coconut Almond Crunch Snack Mix
Toasting the almonds gives them an even nuttier taste. To toast, spread the almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the almonds in a cold oven, set the temp to 350° F, and bake for 9-11 minutes. Stir them occasionally and toast until lightly browned. Cool. A delicious treat that's quick to make and no preservatives! Plus almonds make a fabulous snack - they're cholesterol-free and loaded with protein, fiber and unsaturated fats.
