I needed something to break up my regular eggs and veggie breakfast and I’ve found just the thing. I fact the first batch was such a hit it only lasted 3 days. Bugger! now I have to make some more. Just as well its easy.
Anyway I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Preheat oven to 140 C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
Process ½ the almonds into a fine meal. Transfer into a bowl. Process the remaining almonds and all the walnuts until roughly chopped. Combine mixture with almond meal.
