5 Health Benefits of Almonds

Almonds have been revered as a healthy food source for thousands of years. Today, almonds are still considered a nutrient-packed ingredient, providing those who consume them with a variety of vitamins and minerals and a number of health benefits. Here are just 5 of the many health benefits that you could see from eating almonds on a regular basis.


  1. A Better Memory - Almonds contain a number of nutrients that help to improve cognitive function and to delay age-related brain decline. Alongside, Vitamin E, folate and fiber, almonds are also a great source of phytochemicals that act as antioxidants to reduce inflammation in the brain, and so eating just a single serving (28g) of almonds a day can help to keep your brain healthy and will improve the longevity of your memory. 
  2. Better Cardiovascular Health - Alongside helping to reduce cholesterol levels, almonds are also one of the world’s best sources of Vitamin E, with a single serving providing 37% of a person’s recommended daily intake. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and when combined with healthier cholesterol levels has been scientifically proven to help prevent heart disease. 
  3. Easier Weight Management - Despite being high in healthy fats, almonds are a great weight loss food, helping to keep you feeling fuller for longer whilst also providing many essential nutrients. There have been many studies conducted on almonds with relation to weight loss, with one finding that those who ate a daily serving of almonds increased their weight loss by 62% compared to those who avoided the nuts and ate a diet rich in complex carbohydrates. 
  4. More Energy - If you find that your energy levels tend to rise and fall throughout the day, then you may have difficulty regulating your blood sugar levels. Almonds are a great source of magnesium which helps your body to regulate your blood sugar, leading to improved and more consistent energy release throughout the day. 
  5. Better Digestion - Finally, almonds are also a great source of fiber, which gives them beneficial prebiotic properties that help to improve the health of your gastrointestinal tract. Just a single serving of almonds provides 3.5g of fiber, which is the same amount as a whole cup of cooked brown rice.

Ingredients

You just need 4 ingredients to make this delicious treat! Here’s what you need:


  • Almonds - It’s best to use unsalted raw almonds. We don’t recommend using salted almonds as the recipe may turn out to be too salty. 
  • Cocoa Powder - An absolute MUST! It gives the almonds a delicate chocolatey flavour.
  • Honey - provides a touch of sweetness. You can also use maple syrup in place of the honey, which makes the recipe vegan-friendly. Maple syrup is slightly less sweet than honey, so you may need to adjust the amount.
  • Sea Salt - for an extra flavourful touch!

How To Make Cocoa Almonds

This recipe couldn’t be easier! Here’s what you will need to do:


To start, you will need to roast the almonds. Preheat the oven to 300°F and spread the almonds evenly on a baking tray. Bake for around 8 minutes. Then, take them out of the oven, shake the pan lightly to make sure they get roasted evenly and bake for about 7-8 minutes more.


Once the almonds are roasted, remove them from the oven and let them cool for about 2-3 minutes.


After they have cooled, place almonds in a medium-sized bowl and add the honey. Mix it.


Add the cocoa and sea salt to the almond honey mixture and toss to coat evenly.


Spread the almonds back on the baking sheet or flat surface and allow them to spread out and cool.


Once fully cooled, enjoy! Or store in an airtight container for up to a week.
