Almonds are the delicately-flavoured, buttery-textured seed of the almond tree with the skin still intact. They are among the world’s healthiest nuts with the lowest calories, and are great sources of protein, iron, calcium and Vitamin E. Almonds are also high in monounsaturated fats, which are healthy fats known to reduce the risk of heart disease!
Sliced almonds make a tasty and attractive garnish for your yogurt bowl, cereal, salad, cakes, and other baked goods. They are also an excellent addition when making granola, as they add crunchiness on top of the typical oat flakes, cinnamon and honey.
