    Well, I love having cereal with slivered almonds with almond milk. But I currently have a batch of almond flour banana muffins in the oven, so that might win out!

    I love to use sliced almonds in homemade granola (as in Megan’s crunchy granola, if you haven’t tried it you are missing out) and i learned from my mom to sprinkle sliced almonds on top of sweet breads and muffins just before baking – zucchini, banana, pumpkin, more zucchini — it looks really pretty and tastes great!

    Being a California girl, almonds have always been around & I like them in any form. I am partial to marzipan, however, & I dream of finding the recipe for a cookie my mom made once (& then lost the recipe) that was kind of like a Mexican wedding cake or Russian tea cake with an almond paste mixture in the center.
