We all love snacks. But let's face it, we all get tired of the same food over and over again. When that happens, we tend to veer off of our health kick and give in to the temptation of sugary snacks. We'll let you in on a little secret, though. Did you know that almonds are one of the healthiest snacking options?

If you’re looking to jazz up your snacks and make them interesting with almonds, we have a few recipes that can help!
