National Almond Day: You'll Go Nuts for Roasted Almonds (Great for On-the-Go Snacking)!

Between school drop-offs and pick-ups, after-school activities and soon the endless schedule of activities, having healthy snacks on hand is a must. Almonds are a tasty and nutritious snack, and roasting your own almonds elevates them to a new level. I roast a batch on Monday and have them on hand for snacking throughout the week. Here’s how!

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Lay the raw almonds in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
  • Cook for approximately 8 minutes or until brown. Shake the pan after 6 minutes. (The trick is to get them as brown as possible without burning them!)
  • Let them cool and serve.

A fun tip: Altoids tins and Orbit gum car cups are great portable containers for these almonds. You can also add chocolate chips or dried fruit as a fun combo. Or enjoy them with a glass of wine!

I made a batch of these last night. I eat almonds all the time as a snack, but never thought to roast them. So good! Thanks for the tip!
