Nutritional values

These small fruit cubes are wonderfully suited to replenish energy quickly and are rich in nutrients. Almonds contain a lot of vitamin E, which strengthens the heart health. The crunchy kernels are also considered one of the best sources of bone-strengthening calcium on a purely vegetable basis.

If you eat a vegan diet or want to or have to avoid animal fats, replace the butter with a high-quality vegetable margarine with 80 percent fat content.
