These roasted almonds make fun healthy snacks as well as movie "munchies" and party appetizers. I especially like making these around the autumn and winter holidays. Feel free to add a little bit of cinnamon or nutmeg to spice up your almonds.

Makes about 8 cups

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups raw whole almonds
  • 4 T. melted dairy-free soy margarine
  • 1 cup maple syrup, preferably Grade B
  • 1 t. coarse salt

Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Place the almonds in a large bowl. In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted dairy-free soy margarine and maple syrup, whisking until well combined. Pour the maple mixture over the almonds, stirring well with a wooded spoon or spatula until the nuts are evenly coated. Spread the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet, and sprinkle with the salt. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, rotating the baking sheet and stirring the nuts half-way through to ensure even roasting. Allow the almonds to cool completely on the baking sheet on a wire cooling rack, then transfer to an airtight container. Maple Roasted Almonds will keep for 1 week in an airtight container at room temperature.

So I haled this recipe since it was only going to be about three people eating this, and I used a cup and a third of almonds, pecans and cashew. . I followed the directions, but when I went to flip over the nuts after 15 minutes, the batch had burnt! So I started over with a successful bunch! For four cups of nuts, I only used a third of a cup of maple syrup, mainly because that was all we had left-but I worked! I also lowered the temperature to 250, ad and had the nuts in the oven for around the full time. You might need to keep them in the over a wee bit longer. But they came out delicious, and I'm off to bake them again!
