Buffalo Spiced Almonds + 22 Healthy Recipes

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.

    Okay, I just finished them! AND it turns out that I had cayenne after all, so Yay! I like them! Will make again. So easy and caliente!

      LOL just saw this! I’m glad you had cayenne and they turned out well! I love the spice, I actually have to make another batch soon! I think they’ll be good for the Superbowl!

    These almonds look/sound delicious. I'm going to try a batch for this evening as I have everything on hand except cayenne. I'll try it with chili powder instead. Thank you for sharing!


  1. […] So lets get to it.  One of my biggest things I have made and loved are buffalo spiced almonds.  I have actually made them 3 times in one month that is how much I love them.  This recipe cuts out the cravings for chips for me and I can’t get enough of them.  Since almonds are pretty pricey I go and get a big bag at Sams Club.  It helps cut down the cost and it is a big 3 lb bag.  If you like salty with a little kick I am sure you are going to love these too. Here is the recipe. http://littlebgcg.com/2014/01/buffalo-spiced-almonds-22-healthy-recipes.html […]
