What Are Some Simple Recipes for Roasting Almonds in the Oven?

Savory thyme roasted almonds, maple almonds, light-your-mouth-on-fire almonds, and Chinese roasted almonds are some simple and easy recipes for roasting almonds in the oven. Roasting almonds with a little honey and salt is another delicious and simple option.

To make savory thyme roasted almonds, mix together about 2 cups of plain whole almonds, 2 tablespoons of coconut or olive oil, 1 teaspoon of dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, and a generous pinch of black pepper and sea salt. Spread the almonds out on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 F for at least 10 minutes and up to 20 minutes until lightly browned. You can use other herbs for a different flavor. Rosemary lends a springy fragrance, while basil and oregano add an Italian crunch.

For maple almonds, mix together 2 to 3 cups of almonds, 3 to 4 tablespoons of maple syrup, a dash of cinnamon, and a little sea salt. Roast at the same temperature and time length as above. Keep a careful eye on the almonds while they are in the oven, as the maple syrup may cause them to burn more easily.

To make light-your-mouth-on-fire almonds, mix a couple of cups of almonds with 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, a little salt, and 2 tablespoons of honey. Roast for 10 to 20 minutes. For Chinese almonds, mix 3 cups of almonds with two tablespoons of good quality MSG-free soy sauce, a little oil, 1/2 teaspoon of dried ginger and a dash of cumin.
