Pumpkin Maple Roasted Almonds

What do you do when you have a little pumpkin puree left in the can?

(Because of course I’m not going to throw it out…)

Mix it with some maple syrup and them smother raw almonds with it.

  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • -3 cups almonds, raw
  • -3 tablespoons organic pumpkin puree
  • -3 tablespoons maple syrup, raw
  • -1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Next, in a medium size bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Then, add in raw almonds and toss. Make sure all almonds are evenly coated.

Notes

When you take the nuts out of the oven, they will not be crunchy at first. Let them cool for at least 20-30 minutes before eating!

I got really inspired to make something with pumpkin after yesterday’s Fit Foodie Finds Friday post. I attempted gluten free pumpkin cookies and that was an epic fail.
