[center] Home-Roasted Almonds and Coconut “Fried” Almonds [/center]
The problem with store-bought roasted almonds is that sometimes they use unhealthy oils and refined, cheap salt. They’re also really expensive compared to DIY’ing it at home, plus you’ll find that these recipes below taste better than the canned stuff.
1 pound whole raw almonds
Unrefined pink sea salt (which contains all the good trace minerals)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spread the almonds out in a couple of baking dishes or on a pizza pan. Because you know you own one, you fat bastard.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. If you start to smell the nutty aroma, they’re ready.
Sprinkle with salt, let cool, and enjoy.
Coconut “Fried” Almonds
This is my personal favorite.
Whole raw almonds
Unrefined pink sea salt
Good coconut oil, in spray form or jarred
Add a little coconut oil to a very hot pan. Add almonds and toss to coat. Watch them very closely for browning and flip 'em around a lot. Add salt and remove when they’re done to your liking.
Option: Toss on some unsweetened coconut flakes and divide into single-serving baggies. Grab a bag whenever you head out. Give the finger to your co-workers eating whole-grain chocolate chip cookies.
