Whenever I went to visit my Italian grandparents as a child, their house would me devoid of sugary treats or processed, packaged ‘snack’ foods, and instead we would be given almonds or raw peanuts to snack on.

Thus grew a love of almonds which has continued on into my adult life. These days, asides from having a stash of natural almonds on hand, I also love playing around with different flavoured roasted nuts – and this would have to be my favorite.

These almonds are the perfect blend of spice and zest to make a moreish little snack that makes a tasty alternative to natural almonds.
