Find out how easy it is to dry roast almonds!
My family loves to snack. And because we homeschool, we’re home a lot, which means there’s plenty of time for snacking. Because of this, I try to offer healthy snacks for my family, like these dry roast almonds, so at least those snacks can be packed full of vitamins instead of just junk.
Almonds in general are such a great snack. They are surprisingly filling, full of fiber and protein, and a great source of nutrients. They’re full of potassium, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin E, so they’re really a great choice for snacking on.
While I love raw almonds, I sometimes want to change it up a bit, and I’ve found that dry roasting the almonds can bring out an amazing flavor. Sure, you can buy them from the store already roasted, but fresh roasted tastes so much better. I find that after having eaten fresh roasted, when I eat ones that I’ve bought already roasted, they seem a bit stale.
The best part is that it is so easy to dry roast almonds at home! All you’ll need is 15-20 minutes, some almonds, a cookie sheet, and an oven!
- 1 lb. raw almonds
- Preheat oven to 350º.
- Spread raw almonds in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Put parchment paper under the almonds if you want to make it easier to pick them up when they're done.
- Roast in oven for 10 minutes, then stir. Put back in for 5-10 more minutes, until they are roasted to your liking.
- Allow almonds to cool. If you used parchment paper, just pick up two edges of the paper and tip one end to make the almonds slide down and into a container for storage.
