1 and 1/4 cup raw almonds
1 and 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup, agave, or honey
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a small/medium baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease lightly with non-stick spray or oil.
Place the almonds in a medium bowl and add in the maple syrup/agave/honey. Mix with a spoon until the almonds are evenly coated. Add in the cocoa powder and salt and continue to mix until the almonds are evenly coated.
Pour the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer and roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Make sure you watch them carefully and don't roast them for longer otherwise they will burn!
