A Dozen Delicious Almond Recipes

Adding almonds to your diet can improve your health, but there are more ways to eat these nuts than by the handful. Try these plant-based recipes, and sneak some healthy almonds into your day.

Almonds – like other nuts – deliver protein, fiber and healthy fat. In multiple studies, almonds have been shown to reduce bad cholesterol and reduce risk of heart attack. You can read more about the health benefits of almonds here.

Try these plant-based recipes, and sneak some healthy almonds into your day.

If you’ve tried to get more almonds into your day-to-day, you may have started drinking almond milk instead of soy or cow milk. Unfortunately, most almond milks contain barely any almonds. The good news is that you don’t need almond milk to add these healthy nuts to your diet.
