Almonds… anti-aging snack | アーモンドスナック

It’s been quite a busy for the last couple of weeks with family events, followed by a short trip at the end of the summer season.


it’s been a while since I last blogged and I (hope) to be back to my normal daily routines, suddenly to notice that summer has suddenly closed it’s curtain to open another new season; one of my favorite autumn season.


Croquants aux Amandes (Crunchy Almonds)

This is a light snack I made for the short road trip which I picked up from a cooking magazine.

It keeps well at humid temperatures


it serves as my ‘anti-aging’ beautifying snack!!!!


‘beauty conscious people’ here is a recipe you should definitely try. FYI, 20~23 almonds are allowed to be taken as an anti-aging nutrient so this is perfect munchie or coffee snack.

Almond Powder…..100g

Cinnamon Sugar…..45g


Glazing Liquid

Egg Yolk…..2

Granulated Sugar…..10g
