Spicy Almonds

Spicy Almonds
Serves: 4

If you're looking for a unique snack for work, these almonds make a perfect portable alternative.

1 cup almonds
1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil (I substitute Pam cooking spray for the oil)
1/2 tablespoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Dash fresh ground pepper

1. Roast almonds in oil (Pam spray), stirring frequently in a skillet over medium low heat until slightly browned and crispy.
2. Toss nuts with spices until evenly covered.
3. Spread out on aluminum foil to cool completely and then store in an airtight container.

The original recipe callsfor garlic salt,and I substituted garlic powder, I use Pam cooking spray instead of canola oil, so I know that will change the numbers on both the fat/calorie/carb count, lowering them.
