The other day one of my friends Facebook status was something about having to navigate the rec center parking lot to get to swim classes for her daughter with the New Year’s rush. I laughed. I mean the rec center gym isn’t going to be that much busier just because its the New Year’s right?
When I went to my rec center to drop Mason off at his Preschool the gym was PACKED.
And then I thought why am I even surprised that it was so packed? I myself have also made a resolution to lose weight and get fit, so of course the rest of the world did too!
One of my issues is that I’m a snacker, how can you not be when you have kids? One of my go to snacks is always almonds but truth be told, it can get old which is why I love buying raw almonds and seasoning them however I want.
I’ve done a pumpkin spice before too. This time it was a Buffalo spice. Not only are these great for snacks but they would be perfect as something to munch on during your Superbowl party!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl combine 2 cups almonds, 1 tbsp melted butter, 2 tbsps hot sauce, 2 tsp cayenne powder, 1 tsp garlic salt and 1/2 tsp onion powder.
Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper (I was out of parchment paper so I used foil). Spread the almonds out evenly on the sheet.
Cook for 20 minutes, let it cool and enjoy!
These are so yummy and even better easy to make!
