10 Best Almond Recipes – National Almond Day!

Hi everyone,

As today is ‘National Almond Day’, what better way to celebrate than sharing a collection of healthy recipes both sweet and savoury all containing… Almonds!

What is not to love about almonds?  Known for being a protein powerhouse in the nut family, and being used in such diverse ways these days, I thought I would share with you a range of recipes that highlight just how versatile they really are! From toasted in a salad, to ground into almond meal and used in baking, there really are a million ways to include almonds in your diet.

Here are the 10 best almond recipes I’ve rounded up to get you started:

1. Spiced quinoa with almonds and feta from the BBC Good Food website:

I hope one of these recipes has sparked some motivation to cook with almonds in honour of National Almond Day! If not, just remember almonds are packed with ‘good’ fats, high in fibre and vitamin E (among many other things)!

Until next time,
