Loaded Baked Almonds

Raw almonds can be a little bland. so I decided to dress them up with different spices and seasonings. They are still as healthful as ever but so delicious. I make these almonds every week and always have a stash of them in the pantry for a quick snack. I always bring these almonds out for company to serve with cocktails, they absolutely devour these nuts.This very easy recipe for baked almonds will keep for several weeks in a airtight container.You can buy large bags of almonds at a discount store and they are generally reasonably priced--making this an inexpensive and healthy snack for the entire family. You can adjust the seasonings to your taste and make them a little different each time.

      Ahhh! Good hub for a good snack! I probably have the highest almond and cashew consumption on this continent, according to myself. And now I have one more way to consume it!

      4th reading on HP and I'm still on food page. Lol! I love almonds and I love this. I will surely put my hands on this and will experiment on cayenne powder.

      Up, sharing and pinning.

      I love almonds, they have a good rep for being healthy. This sounds like a good way to fix them. I will try this. Thanks!

      Lovely. Thank you for informing us how to do this. I've never bought raw nuts, though. I have seen them, I think, at a health store once. If they're actually raw, don't they need to be refrigerated while they wait for sale? I wonder this because when I was 12 I accidentally had some kind of outdoor nuts in my bedroom and within a week they were crawling with maggots.

      I have read several times that the kinds of packaged nuts we buy from regular stores are not baked in a way that keeps the nutrition intact. I look forward to finding some well-kept raw nuts and trying your recipe. Voting way up, Sharing and Pinning.

      LOVE seasoned almonds (or other nuts)! Didn't realize it would be so easy. Me the non-cook might even get brave enough to try them. Thanks for sharing the recipes!

      The sweet almonds do seem tempting and the spicy baked ones too are inviting. I love almonds in any form though I love to add them to my oatmeal breakfast as well as eat them soft when they are soaked overnight in water.

      Thanks for pinning and tweeting. They are good any old time, and fortunately almonds seem to be the only nut that is not terribly expensive...10.00 for a large bag at Costco.

      This looks really good. We've been eating a lot more almonds, but after awhile I can't look at the anymore. This will mix it up a bit.

      These look not only easy to make but delicious. I eat raw almonds daily and over time it can get boring. Thanks for giving me away to that part of my diet a lot more exciting. Voted up!
