These Cinnamon Toasted Almonds are a healthy snack option for during the day and only require 4 ingredients to make.
Do you ever just dream?
I mean really dream? Like if nothing was stopping you, what would you do? Is there something that you have always loved doing that you wish you could do on a permanent basis?
I think we ask ourselves these questions when we’re little. You know, when someone asks a little kid what they want to be when they grow up and they say “A doctor, or a police officer, or an astronaut.” But then once we become “adults” we just stop dreaming. Why?
God puts those dreams, loves, and passions in our hearts for a reason. What if you were really meant to be a famous photographer but because you didn’t think you were good enough, creative enough, or smart enough you just didn’t pursue it. Think of what you missed out on.
The joy, the fulfillment in doing something you love, the success that comes with it. But instead, because we don’t BELIEVE we could ever achieve that we don’t even pursue it. What does that say about what we think about ourselves? Do you think you are capable of greatness?
What do you dream about? What are you passionate about? These are just some of the questions I have been asking myself lately and it has really challenged me.
Ok, off my soap box. Just wanted to leave you with some things to think about AND a recipe! So here comes the recipe part. 🙂
I am always looking for something to snack on during the day and these Cinnamon Toasted Almonds are not only absolutely delicious but also crazy easy to make and only call for 4 ingredients. Once these Almonds are tossed with cinnamon and toasted to perfection they are good to go and ready to be snacked on. My husband likes to mix them with raisins, he says they taste like your eating a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel. To give him credit, I tried it and it kinda does, and who doesn’t want to eat a Cinnamon Raisin Bagel. 🙂
