Soaked Raw Almonds with Honey + Cinnamon Recipe

Have you heard about soaking raw almonds in water?

Jenny Doh

I recently learned about it from a raw food enthusiast friend of mine who told me that if you take raw almonds and soak them in water over night, they will become super plump and fun to eat. (Not that almonds aren't fun to eat non-soaked ... but I thought this was a cool new way to enjoy one of my favorite nuts.)

After soaking them in a glass over night, all you need to do is rinse them out in fresh water the morning after. Once rinsed, you can see how the almonds are all plumped up, with the outer membranes looking super alive.

I decided to douse my plump almonds with honey and cinnamon and then literally gobbled them up. So, so good. My friend says that if you continue the process of soaking and rinsing for several days, the almonds will actually sprout and that they are super good to eat when sprouted as well.

Perhaps I'll one day be able to wait until they sprout but for now, I can't seem to get past the first day of soaking them and then eating them all up. 

EDIT :: This is technically a germination process so it's smart to keep the soaking almonds in a cool dark place like the refridgerator to inhibit bacteria growth. The more it germinates, the easier it becomes to digest and the more it sprouts, the fewer calories and more nutrients the almonds will have.
