SO HOW'D IT GO?

Just had this for dinner. So simple and so tasty. Didn't toast the almonds, maybe next time.

Would it be possible for you to list what temperature the almonds should be baked at?  I burn stuff quite easily and an actual temp (C or F) would be really useful...

This was a HIT with my boyfriend.  Usually I make half-recipes or otherwise make adjustments, but I'm glad I didn't this time.  We get to eat them again tomorrow!  :D

Only 4/5 stars?  :-\  Come on, this may be simple, but you can't beat something this healthy and delicious!
