Tamari Roasted Almonds

Tamari Roasted Almonds

The earthy, slightly salty flavor of these nuts is an easy way to enjoy a crunchy, healthy snack. Perfect for backpacks and lunch boxes. Roasting almonds yourself has many potential benefits to your health. First, when you control the ingredients, you tend to add far less salt. Second, the delicate fats in almonds are preserved when they are gently roasted and eaten within a few days time. Roasted almonds from the store could have been sitting there for years.

Serves: Makes 3 cups

  • 3 cups raw almonds

  • 1/3 cup low-sodium tamari or soy sauce



  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Spread almonds in a single layer on 1 to 2 baking sheets and bake for approximately 10 minutes. Nuts are done when you can smell their sweet aroma. Check frequently to avoid burning.

  2. Remove almonds from oven, place in a medium mixing bowl and add sauce. Stir until evenly coated. Return to oven in a single layer for about 15 more minutes, stirring occasionally. Almonds are done when they appear dry and are crunchy when sampled.

  3. Enjoy hot, fresh out of the oven, or let cool and store in an airtight container.
