Easy Pumpkin Spice Roasted Almonds

If you’re looking for an easy pumpkin spice flavored snack that’s healthy and festive enough for entertaining, try these roasted almonds. They’re sweet, salty, cinnamony, and good for you too. If you like the flavor of maple syrup, you could substitute that for the honey. The salt brightens and highlights all the other flavors. Serve them up and share with friends for a guilt-free holiday snack. They make a great hostess gift and will fill your kitchen with a wonderfully warm and spicy autumn scent.
