It's no secret that almonds are an excellent food: they are a nutritional powerhouse, packed with essential vitamins and minerals; such as vitamin E, magnesium, manganese, and biotin. Finally, almonds contain significant amounts of fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

They come blanched, diced, slivered, sliced and in flour form which is what we use in abundance at Piccola Cucina.  There are many recipes that can be made using them as a base, thus preserving their nutritional value while enjoying a delicious snack, meal, or breakfast or anything in between.
