Ranch Roasted Almonds are a great, high-protein snack option that’s so easy to make! Just 3 ingredients and 20 minutes to make.
As a mom of 3 kids, I feel like snacks are happening all day long sometimes. They’re not really, but especially since my kids are homeschooled and home all day, a lot of food happens at our house.
I don’t want my kids to eat carbs or sugar all day, so I try to have some healthy, protein-filled snacks on hand all the time. This includes cheese sticks, hard boiled eggs, jerky, and nuts.
To keep things interesting, I like to try different seasonings on the nuts we have. We rotate through different kinds of nuts (mostly depending on what’s on sale), and enjoy raw pecans, almonds, and walnuts. We also enjoy roasted almonds, cashews, pecans, and pistachios.
Roasting these almonds in ranch made for a fun and different snack that we all enjoyed.
Are Ranch Roasted Almonds good for you?
Almonds are a great snack. They’re packed full of Vitamins A & E, magnesium, manganese, calcium, fiber, healthy fats, and protein. There are also studies that have shown that almonds can help stabilize blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and help cholesterol levels.
Commercial ranch seasoning can have MSG, or other additives you might want to avoid. You can easily make your own ranch seasoning, so you know these ranch roasted almonds contain only the best ingredients.
What’s the difference between roasted and dry roasted nuts?
When nuts are dry roasted, they are roasted without any oils. For directions on dry roasting, check out our Dry Roasted Almonds.
When nuts are roasted, they are typically drizzled or tossed with an oil first.
- 1 1/2 lbs. raw almonds
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. ranch seasoning
- Preheat oven to 350º. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
- Measure almonds into a gallon bag.
- Drizzle olive oil over the almonds, close the bag, and toss the almonds to coat them all in oil.
- Open the bag and add the ranch seasoning.
- Close, and toss the almonds again, until fully coated.
- Spread in a single layer on the sheet pan.
- Bake for 10 minutes.
- Return to oven for 5-10 minutes more, until almonds are roasted to your liking.
- Allow almonds to cool. Pick up two edges of the parchment paper and tip one end to make the almonds slide down and into a container for storage.
