Spiced Toasted Almonds

Fresh almonds for making spiced toasted almonds

Spice up your next batch of almonds with dried thyme, cayenne and kosher or sea salt.


1 tablespoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups whole unblanced almonds
Canola oil spray


Preheat oven to 400-degrees.

In large, shallow bowl, combine thyme, salt, pepper and oil. Set aside.

Place nuts in medium bowl. While tossing with fork, lightly spray with canola oil so all surfaces are coated.

Lightly coat baking sheet with canola oil spray. Turn nuts onto sheet and spread evenly across surface. Place baking sheet in center of the oven.

Toast until nuts are lightly browned and fragrant - about eight minutes. Occasionally, shake pan to shift nuts and prevent scorching. (Be careful not to let nuts get too dark or they'll taste burned.)

Remove from oven and immediately add hot nuts to spice mixture. Stir for a few minutes to coat the nuts thoroughly. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Nuts can be sealed and stored for up to two weeks. Reheat in a hot oven.
