Easy Toasted Almonds Recipe

Do you have those certain foods that you never get tired of? Almonds, specifically Toasted Almonds, is one of those for me. I enjoy them mixed in yogurt for breakfast or a snack, added to desserts, as a crunchy addition to a salad, or just a handful for a quick snack on the go. They’re the perfect snack for on the go!

Not only are almonds delicious, especially when taste, they’re considered to be a power food with many healthful benefits. According to California Almonds, studies have shown that eating about 1.5 ounces of most nuts per day can lower risk of heart disease. Almonds are also nutrient dense, packed with protein, vitamin E, fiber, riboflavin, niacin and calcium. A lot of goodness is packed in that little nut.

Over the past few months I have toasted pounds of sliced almonds to have on hand. Toasting them stove top in a skillet is quick and easy. I do love quick and easy, don’t you? Warm a bit of butter or coconut oil over medium heat, toss in the sliced almonds, add a pinch or two of salt, stir it altogether and continue to stir occasionally until almonds are fragrant and golden. Depending on the amount and size of pan, it should only take 5 minutes or so to toast. Maybe less.

As I said, Toasted Almonds are a great addition to many dishes. Here are just a few that I think you’ll enjoy:
