Roasted Almonds, How to Make Your Own!

Like nuts on your ice cream? What about on yogurt? Save money and eat healthy by making your own oven roasted almonds, the perfect topping for a healthy snack!

Almonds are really good for you. They are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants and are a healthy source of protein. Among other things, almonds can help you lose weight and can even help you sleep!

Roasted almonds are one of the easiest ways to dress up your day to day with a healthy flair. Here’s how…

1. Chop almonds to desired coarseness

Chop the almonds to whatever size you prefer, just try to make them a roughly uniform size so that they cook evenly. Or… leave the almonds whole.

2. Spread in a single layer on a baking tray.

Spread your chopped almonds in a single layer on a tray. If you are doing a large amount, you can always make more than one tray.

3. Roast in a preheated 425F oven, 10-12 minutes until the almonds start giving off a nice nutty aroma

My husband always gets a little frustrated with me in the kitchen because I rarely use a timer to let me know when things are done. I like to cook with my nose. When the roasted almonds are ready they will give off a nutty aroma. They nuts will have begun to brown, but DO NOT LET THEM OVERTOAST, they will turn bitter.

4. Store in an airtight container

When the almonds have sufficiently roasted, remove them from the oven and let them cool before storing them in an airtight container.
