Spanish Almonds

Yield 2 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Although these olive oil-roasted almonds contain a high percentage of fat, it's the heart-healthy unsaturated kind. Plus, they offer protein and fiber, which makes them a smart snack, according to Nestle. They're great with a glass of cava (Spanish sparkling wine). The nuts will keep in an airtight container for up to five days.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 pound whole blanched almonds
