How to Make Almonds Crunchy

Save

Almonds are among the healthiest nuts around, packing a powerful nutritious combination of fiber, antioxidants and healthy, monounsaturated fat. Almonds are enjoyed in a variety of ways including sprinkled over salads, ice cream, baked into cakes, pies and cookies and as a topping for savory baked dishes. Plain almonds make a healthy and filling snack. While almonds are hard and fairly crunchy on their own, they become much crunchier if you roast them in the oven.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 lb shelled raw almonds
  • 1 tsp. sea salt (optional)
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Place the almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer.

  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 10 to 14 minutes, until the nuts are golden brown.

  • Remove the almonds from the oven and sprinkle with salt. Allow them to cool for one hour before eating.

  • Store in an airtight container.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can toss the almonds with olive oil and salt before to make sure the salt sticks to the almonds.
  • Try sprinkling cinnamon sugar or spicy seasoning on to the almonds if you prefer.
