Learn how to use your air fryer to make the easiest roasted almonds ever! You’ll love how fresh, delicious and easy they are!
So it turns out that everyone in my house is a little nuts. Nuts for nuts. We all LOVE nuts. Each and every one of us, right down to the dog.
No kidding. I mean, have you seen a dog who loves nuts before? I haven’t!
I generally keep a mason jar filled with either roasted or dehydrated nuts on the kitchen counter within reach for the kids in case we have a snack attack!
Whenever Stella sees one of the kids with their hands in the nut jar, she just gets so excited her whole backend wags uncontrollably, then she starts going through her trick repertoire.
Honestly, we love to eat them. Almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans. We don’t care.
It sounds silly, but I’m not afraid of nuts anymore.
I used to be hesitant to eat them because all you’d ever hear about nuts is how they are so high in fat. But what no one tells you is that some fat is actually a good thing and that some fats are better than others.
Nuts are high in both unsaturated fats and Omega 3 fatty acids – both of which are very good for you!
That love has driven me to find easy alternatives to roasting that don’t include the oven or stirring. or any more work than the baaaaare minimum.
So here’s how you do it!
Air Fryer Roasted Almonds Best Practices:
START checking your almonds for doneness around 12 minutes.
YOU’LL know they are done when they have hardened slightly but remain chewy in the middle. As they cool, they will get completely crunchy.
DON’T wait till they are crunchy throughout – they’ll be burnt!
HOW TO STORE YOUR ALMONDS:
Allow almonds to cool fully before transferring to an air-tight storage container. Your almonds should keep at least a week in a proper container. I love using mason jars for storage purposes.
HOW TO USE ROASTED ALMONDS:
Roasted almonds are a super way to incorporate flavour and crunch to your diet. These almonds are great:
- in salads
- in wraps
- as a snack
- as part of trail mix
- in roasted almond butter!
