Tips + tricks

No. 1 --> Buy your nuts in bulk. Nuts ain't cheap, but they are delicious, so stock up!

No. 2 --> Start checking your almonds for doneness around 12 minutes in the Actrify and 6 or so minutes in a conventional air fryer.

No. 3 --> 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.

No. 4 --> If you wait till they are crunchy throughout - they'll be burnt!

How to make

  1. Add almonds and coconut oil to air fryer
  2. Cook for 6-8 minutes for a conventional air fryer, and 10-12 minutes in an Actifry.
  3. Transfer to a paper towel to absorb extra oil
  4. Cool on a wire rack, then transfer to an airtight jar
  5. ENJOY!

How to store

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.

I've had an Actifry for years, but we recently upgraded to an Instant Vortex 6 Qt. I gotta say, it's love. If you don't have one, you should!
