Why I Love This Recipe

Roasted almonds are one of my favourite snacks. 

I leave a bowl out on the counter, and it seems that every time someone walks by that bowl, they grab a few to go.

They’re not only healthy and full of fibre, but they’ll satisfy your hunger for hours.

Why You'll Love This Recipe

It’s easy, quick, tasty, inexpensive, easy to eat and carry around, and not even remotely messy, and the spicing combinations you can make means you can create a variety of flavours. 

Directions for Baking Almonds

  • Set oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place almonds on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for a total of 10 to 15 minutes or until roasted to your liking.  It’s important to give the nuts a mix every 4 or 5 minutes while roasting.  Watch them closely since they will burn quickly and go from amazing to yucky in seconds.
  • Cool the nuts completely before transferring them to a bowl.
  • Baked almonds are counter-friendly for a full week or you can put them in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Cook’s Notes/Tips

  • Add a touch of olive oil – just enough to very lightly coat the almonds and add some spice like a sprinkle of salt, cumin, ground cinnamon or whatever spice you like. 

  • You can even add a tsp. of honey to sweeten them up.

  • You can do this technique with walnuts, pecans and other larger whole nuts.
