I looked around and found a few recipes that I could adjust enough to work on a low sugar plan like the Belly Fat Cure or Paleo. Basically that means removing all sugars! I was SHOCKED at the amount of sugar the recipes all had. Cups of sugar, brown sugar and powders sugar! I skipped it all, but I'm pretty much over sweeteners at this point. *You could add a few packets stevia sweeteners or xylitol if you needed it sweeter. Paleo eaters could add a little Maple Syrup if wanted.
Crockpot Cinnamon Chocolate Almonds
- 3 Cups Raw Almonds or other nuts (not roasted or salted)
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp Raw Cacao (regular cocoa will work too, but this is better)
- Big Pinch each of: Pumpkin Pie Spice, ground nutmeg (any other favorite spices)
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- Sea Salt (regular salt will work too, but this is better)
Once it is all done and removed from the slow cooker, I sprinkled with sea salt to taste.These will make a great hostess gift or small friend gift for the holidays! One of the craft projects I've been obsessed with lately is reusing old tins. These old coffee tins, painted, glittered or stencil, will be great filled with Cinnamon Chocolate Almonds! Cute, right?
