Almond Brittle with Pink Himalayan Sea Salt (Paleo, Vegan, AIP, Organic)

So the last couple weeks of summer has marked some kitchen experimentation. Some recipes have worked and some haven’t. I’m overdue for writing those up…

This time I was inspired by an upcoming fall camping trip. There’s a lot of traditional food I won’t be able to indulge in (sigh, s’mores) so I wanted to make something that I could enjoy, and better yet, that everyone else would too. Not diet food. Not special food. Not, “there goes DetoxMama and her crazy eating” food. Just a good whole-foods unprocessed organic treat. And not only did this work, it’s as easy as it gets.

I had a simple vision: maple syrup, almonds, a little coconut oil, and pink Himalayan sea salt are effortlessly combined to form fabulous, 100% organic, vegan & paleo goodness. I used a candy thermometer to measure to 300 F and that’s as technical as it gets. The unrefined sea salt brings in 84 minerals and the coconut oil adds MCTs – all integral to health and wellness.

This will be a new go-to recipe not just for camping, but for bringing to people’s homes and school events.

Now my aesthetically gifted friends, I need ideas for how to best package them up. A tin? Waxpaper? Ribbon?
