But really though, what’s better than sea salt and chocolate? Mmm … cover almonds in them, that’s what.
If you know me or follow me on any form of social media, you’re well aware of my obsession with nuts and nut butters. It’s a problem actually, I’m working on that whole moderation thing. So when I had the opportunity to test out Blue Diamonds new Dark Chocolate almonds and Sea Salt almonds, I had to wipe the drool away in order to respond with a resounding …
You see, for me, nuts are an extremely efficient food. They’re quick, portable and typically cure my desire to snack on (read: inhale) food post-class. They’re chock full of protein and low in sugar and sodium. Am I starting to sound like a commercial? Because I don’t mean to, I just really really love me some almonds. And almond butter. And almond milk. Okay, moving on.
Crunchy and filling these little nibbles are my favorite. While I sometimes go with raw almonds, these sea salted ones are the perfect snack if I’m craving something with a bit more oomph.
Also, when I’m trying to keep my paw out of the Triscuit box.
I mean, really. Need I say more?
Dusted in cocoa powder these bites are exactly what I need when I go to reach for a handful of M&Ms. They are the best when it comes to satisfying my sweet tooth. Which, honestly, can be a bit uncontrollable at times.
And since we’re in the trust circle, let’s just say these puppies didn’t last very long in my house. While my intentions were to create a recipe utilizing these protein-packed nuggets, no such thing happened. Instead they were my go-to snack for an entire week — ahem — okay few days.
Judgement free zone, people. I know you’d have done the same thing.
