Spiced Roasted Almonds (Vegan)

spiced, almonds, garlic, lime, savory, roasted, gluten free

I love to snack on almonds, as do my kids. When my stomach is on empty, almonds come to the rescue. They satisfy my hunger fast.

I often make  Chocolate Roasted Almonds for an afternoon treat, but lately I’ve been craving more of a savory snack. This new recipe fits the bill.

I am crazy for lime, garlic and anything that has a little kick to it. I am always tempted to buy the store bought brands of mixed nuts at the grocery store, but the ingredients are less than stellar. Who needs modified corn starch, corn syrup and/or  canola oil on their nuts as most brands contain?! By making your own nut mixture snack at home, you can not only save a ton of money but also soak the nuts to help with digestion.
