Hi there, Spiffy Cookie readers!  I am thrilled to be posting for Erin today because I have what might be my new favorite snack to share with you!

I love simple snacks with tons of flavor.  But I also love being able to make them at home.  It is really easy to buy great snacks at the grocery store but cooking is half the fun for me.  I love being able to choose my own spices and switch out ingredients, especially for roasted almonds and mixed nuts!

I’ve chosen buffalo flavoring, rosemary and my newest to share with you: Sriracha-soy & sesame almonds! We love Sriracha sauce in our house.  Actually, we love any spicy condiment, this being one at the top of the list.  And these were so simple to make, and a perfect snack for any party!

Sriracha-Soy & Sesame Almonds


2 cups almonds

2 Tbs. Sriracha sauce

2 Tbs. soy sauce

2 Tbs. olive oil

2 tsp. sesame seeds


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a large bowl, stir the Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, olive oil and sesame seeds together until blended.

Add the almonds and stir well to coat.  Pour the almonds and the Sriracha mixture onto a 9×13 sheet pan and spread in an even layer.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, stirring the almonds every 10 minutes.  Place the almonds back into the oven for an additional 5 minutes, watching closely so that the flavoring doesn’t burn.

I tried these with walnuts, almonds, and cashews. I also added a bit of garlic and onion powder. They turned out very yummy!

Making these:

Didn’t have enough almonds, so I added hazelnuts and what I had left of my walnuts. I used coconut oil instead of EVOO (only because I think it will add a nice flavour component, not because I don’t love some good EVOO ) and some Lyle’s Golden Syrup because I like a little sweet with my spice.

It’s SO DELICIOUS!!! Now to wait until the nuts finish roasting in my oven for even more yumminess #YumO #MMMMmmmmGood
