5 Health Benefits of Almonds

Almonds are NUT-ritious, delicious, and just one of the great healthy ingredients in Chunkie Dunkies cookies! But what exactly makes this superfood so super? 
1. Almonds are packed with nutrients 
Just one ounce of almonds contains 3.5 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and 9 grams of monosaturated fat! Almonds also contain Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, Manganese, Magnesium, Calcium, and Iron. 
2. Almonds promote brain health
They contain riboflavin and L-carnitine, two nutrients that promote neural pathways and nervous system functioning. 
3. Almonds can lower cholesterol 
Studies show that these nuts reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. 
4. Almonds promote weight loss
High in protein and low in carbohydrates, almonds decrease hunger and increase satiety, promoting a lower calorie intake. 
5. Almonds encourage healthy skin
The nuts contain linoleic and linolenic acids, both of which are fatty acids that reduce inflammation in the body and boost skin health. 
Chunkie Dunkies incorporates fresh, organic almonds into many of our cookie recipes! Our products are raw and dehydrated... our cookies keep the integrity of the nutrients found in almonds. When you eat a Chunkie Dunkie, you can be sure that you are eating a healthy, nutritious treat.
