Buffalo Spiced Nuts

Buffalo Spiced Nuts

When I tried these last month I KNEW I had to knock them off!  So I called our dear friend Rebecca at Cakewalk Catering . . .again! . . . and she set to work.  I’m originally from Michigan, where Buffalo Wings are a sports-night staple.  So often though commercial wing sauces are loaded with sugar and preservatives.  In the recipe below, we’ve captured the flavor of those wings, but without any of  the bad stuff.

By the way, I am a BIG believer in almonds as a great source of on-the-go protein.  You’ll always see me with one of those car-cup-holder-sized containers being passed around when I pick the children up from school.  Having the right snacks on hand helps you to make the right decisions when hunger strikes.

Let me know how you like the recipe and any modifications you make to yours (some like it hotter!)

Buffalo Spiced Almonds
