Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Roasted almonds are always a classic holiday staple – why not try a tasty and healthier take on it this season?

Almonds are filled with protein that will help keep you full longer, so this recipe helps with portion control and holds you over more than an empty-calorie dessert would. Plus, the cinnamon, vanilla and brown sugar give this dessert the holiday flavor without the extra calories found in heavier desserts such as cakes and pies.
