Salted Honey Sesame Almonds
I’m happy to share this recipe for one the the best snacks ever: super easy, glazed Salted Honey Sesame Almonds. But before we get to the recipe, pull up a chair and let’s talk about what I’m nuts about.
Why I’m Nuts About Being an Entrepreneur
I read a blog post about why the author liked being an entrepreneur, which got me to thinking about my journey. What is it that’s driving me to be my own task master? I came up with these:
I like the flexibility to set my own hours. I’m pretty sure I’m spending more time at work and than when I was a full-time employee for someone else. But I like that I have been able to play tennis, take my dog on a walk, enjoy a cup of cocoa (or a La Croix) from somewhere other than my desk, and work from anywhere.
I like to travel and wanted my business to take to the skies. As a speaker, I’m honored that I’ve been invited to New York, Oregon, Arizona, Utah, Kentucky, Nevada, Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Delaware, Rhode Island and beyond. I write about travel and my fun and favorite recommendations here.
As an nutrition educator, I couldn’t be happier that I impact others with news they can use. I’ve spoken to thousands of people on reclaiming your better self, improving productivity and focus; reducing food waste at home; and improving communication skills to help people take the stage with confidence. My LiveBest webinar series and books Your 6-Week Guide to LiveBest, Simple Solutions for Fresh Food & Well-Being and LiveBest Seasonally are helping people improve their lives so that they live the life they want.
From writing books and articles to developing presentations. I like creating things. As a food enthusiast, I create recipes that are delish and nutrish. I’m thrilled that my recipes and recommendations have appeared in Prevention.com, CookingLight.com, Shape.com, ReadersDigest.com, Women’sHealthMag.com, FitnessMagazine.com, Men’sFitness.com, EveryDayHealth.com, LuvoInc.com, FilmJournal.com, Walnuts.org and Casper Journal.
I’m delighted that through social media I engage with people all over the world. Let’s be friends on Facebook or subscribe to my recipes and updates. Connect with me on Twitter and Instagram @Judy Barbe.
Have there been headaches? Absolutely. Plus I’ve been on a steep learning curve. Though overall, investing in myself has been a good investment.

How to make Salted Honey Sesame Almonds
To honor the theme of what I’m nuts about, I’m happy to share these super easy, glazed Salted Honey Sesame Almonds. A little sweet + a little salty about sums me up. What are you nuts about?
With just 5 ingredients, these nuts are easy to make for a quick nibble or when company’s coming. Also good for travel snack. Spice them up with hot sauce if you like like Siracha, Tabasco, or harrisa.
On the stove, stir the ingredients until almonds are coated with honey and sesame seeds, 2-3 minutes. Spoon nuts into a single layer on a baking sheet. For easy cleanup, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Then you’re ready to bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
Health benefits of almonds? Protein, fat, fiber
Almonds pack some healthy punches. Protein, fiber, and 12 vitamins and minerals are just some almond’s benefits. The fat in nuts is the heart healthy monounsaturated kind. An ounce of plain almonds has about 130 calories. That’s about 23 almonds or 1/4 cup. If you’re at your desk, they’d cover a 3×3 Post-it note. 😉 but that’s 6 grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fiber.
