ZUBI'S Zesty Chocolate Almonds
3 cups whole almonds
1 Tbsp. ZUBI’S crema
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 Tbsp. vanilla bean paste
Few drops of water
2/3 cup madhava coconut sugar
3 Tbsp. cocoa powder (I prefer dark cocoa powder, but whatever works!)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat the oven to 275°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Whisk together the ZUBI'S Crema, apple sauce, vanilla bean paste, and a few drops of water in a mixing bowl. Beat mixture until it is light and frothy. Add the almonds and toss to evenly coat with the mixture.
In a separate bowl, combine the sugars, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk together very well, being sure to remove any lumps. Add the almonds, and toss to coat. Spread the coated almonds out on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 30 – 40 mins
