This little munchie thing is totally delish on it's own, though it does play an important role in the whole Adriano V8 cake which we have finally filmed and released into the wild. You will need a batch of this for an ingredient in another process, but don't be shy, go ahead and make it as a cookie! YUM. Seriously. The man is genius.

Toast almonds by placing into a cold oven, set to 200°C for exactly 10 minutes. Cool. Reduce oven temperature to 180°C.
Place almonds and vanilla bean into the Thermomix bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 10.
Add remaining ingredients and mix 10 sec/speed 7.
To form a crumble, press mixture through a cooling rack with a lined baking tray underneath.
Bake for 10-15 minutes and allow to cool before adding to the Vanilla Almond Crunch Recipe as directed.
Alternatively, this mixture makes a very delicious biscuit. Form into small rounds and bake for the same amount of time.
