Healthy Candied Almonds

Almonds really are a super food, aren’t they?  Kind of like coconut.    You can use them in so many ways, and they are a great and healthy snack.  But, sometimes I get tired of eating them plain.    I love the flavored kinds you can buy at the store, though they are not as healthy.

Recently,  I had a greek yogurt that came with some candied almonds to put on top… and let me tell you,  it was delicious!  The idea was so simple that I thought, “I bet I could make something like this at home.”

They turned out great on the first try.   That doesn’t happen very often for me when I’m making things up, so I was pretty thrilled.   And, it’s a 3 ingredient recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to throw together.  Pretty awesome.  I will definitely be making these on the regular.

Breakfast Ideas: Egg in a Toast

Sometimes it’s hard finding time to make a good breakfast in the morning.  This is one of my staples because it is healthy, filling, and pretty quick to make!

I love it so much that I sometimes make it for a quick lunch, as well.  (not on the same days that I had it for breakfast, though. haha!)

Another great thing, is that it is a portable breakfast (as long as it isn’t runny in the middle).  So you can grab and take it in the car on the way to work. Continue reading

Almond Flour Chocolate chip cookies – our favorite!!

i’m salivating now..

These cookies are so yummy, they have quickly become a new family favorite! My husband requests them almost every weekend. He says they are better than normal chocolate chip cookies!  That really means something coming from a Non-health-nut!

These cookies taste like toffee candy to me, I love them!  I have tried making them with egg before, because it makes them rise and have more of a cookie texture.  But, they are SO much better without egg!  They have such a different (better!) taste and texture to them.  Try them, you won’t regret it!  And, if you have a picky husband like mine, I bet he will love them too!!
