Thank you to California Almonds for partnering with me on this post. All opinions, as always, are my own. 

Remember when I made Dark Chocolate Toasted Almond & Coconut Hearts to celebrate National Snacking Month & Almond Day? Well, here’s a savory almond recipe to keep the snacking going!

LEMON PEPPER ALMONDS

Being pregnant, I’ve found that I need a snack around 10:30 am and 3:30 pm at my desk every day. I’ve been reaching for trail mix but almonds are so much better for me (& baby).

Just one ounce of almonds curb my appetite and are full of protein, fiber, calcium, potassium, and iron. They’re basically the perfect snack.

Whole, natural almonds are good but to switch it up, I added my favorite seasoning – lemon pepper. I swear I put it on nearly everything and it’s great on almonds.

These almonds travel well and are convenient to keep a little baggie of them in my purse.

Over the weekend, when I’m not at my desk, I eat a handful of these almonds with some Spanish cheese and olives. The perfect little treat for me or it would be great to put out at a party for munchies.
