Quick Tips:

This recipe works well with any type of nut or seed, or you can add a mixture of: walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, cashews. Just be sure to adjust cook time, as the smaller nuts or seeds will burn faster than almonds. 

This makes a great appetizer or gift during the holidays. 

For a sugar-free recipe, use monk fruit, stevia or Swerve instead of sugar. You can find all of these sugar substitutes in the health food section at your local grocery store.
