My spicy chili almonds have become a staple snack for Adam while he is at work. Replacing his more processed snacks with this healthier option has helped him get his cholesterol back down to safe levels. But just as importantly, he loves them. When he returned his empty almond jar to me this week, I decided to mix things up and try a new seasoning option. These still have a kick, but they are also 100% oil free! Oh, and there's nothing better than a wee bit of wasabi when you have a stuffy nose. Makes these a perfect snack for cold and flu season. Just make sure you have a box of tissues handy when you munch on them!
