Rosemary Almonds

Nuts are a great snack option. They are packed with healthy fats and there’s such a big variety of them that there’s a type for every taste. I usually get them unsalted and raw from the bulk section of the grocery store because most of the pre-packaged ones come with tons of added oils, salt and preservatives that aren’t necessary.

Think about it, nuts are mainly fat so why add more oil? I know that eating them unsalted and raw all the time can get a bit boring so let's spice it up!

In this recipe I enjoy using almonds but feel free to experiment with other nuts like cashews or walnuts (and if you do let me know!)
