Honey Glazed Almonds

Once you’ve tried these, you’ll want to make them again, and again, and again…

This simple snack has become a staple in our house, and can often be found in my kids’ school bags.

For those of you with a sweet tooth, this makes a perfect sweet snack to satisfy sugar cravings in a healthy way.

It’s so easy to make and offers many health benefits.
