A good recipe for toasted almonds is to mix raw almonds with spices such as chili powder, coriander and cumin, along with 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and salt. Transfer the well-mixed almonds to a baking tray, and toast for 10 minutes. This can be stored in the refrigerator for up to five days.
For the above recipe, the quantities of the spices can be adjusted according to preference, and the ideal quantities are 1/2 or 1/4 teaspoon of each spice for 2 cups of almonds. The oven must be preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and the almonds must be stirred at least twice during the baking time. Wait until the nuts are completely cooled before storing them.
Another recipe is cinnamon toasted almonds. In a dish, combine 2 cups of raw almonds, salt and 1 teaspoon of powdered cinnamon. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of virgin olive oil over the mixture, and ensure that the almonds are well coated with the spices and oil. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit, and roast the almonds for one hour. Serve the snack immediately, or wait until it is cooled, and store it in an airtight container. Just 1/4 cup of this snack provides 148 milligrams of fiber.
