  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cups dry roasted almonds
  • ¼ teaspoon citric acid (optional)


Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.

  • Measure out two cups of whole almonds and set aside. Mix all the spices in a small bowl.
  • Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet (if you don't have one, it's about time you did).
  • Add the spices to the oil, and mix over medium heat for a few minutes, or until aromatic. Stir in almonds and cook over medium heat for a few minutes.
  • Add the coated almonds to a foil-lined baking tray and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Stir halfway through. Almonds should be a beautiful golden brown. Allow the almonds to cool before diving in. 


  • I prefer using whole almonds instead of sliced almonds in this recipe.
  • When developing this recipe, I chose spices that I personally like. However, please don't feel like you have to use the same exact spices that I used.
  • Store in a jar and enjoy when you're craving a crunchy, healthy snack.
