Coconut & Lime Roasted Almonds – Vegan & Gluten Free

Coconut & Lime Roasted Almonds-

Nothing is easier/quicker that a batch of roasted almonds. I like to switch things up from sweet –>like these Maple Cinnamon Roasted Almonds<– to savoury –>like these Rosemary Roasted Almonds.

These little lovelies are somewhere in the middle. Creamy coconut and fresh lime combine to make your almonds a tropical delight.

“Put the lime in the coconut and steeer ’em both up” 😉 Anyone remember that song? It was on the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack from back in the day and I would listen to it all . the . time . I loved that soundtrack. And the movie for that matter. It’s a pretty crazy and violent film but still so cool. I’m a fan of a lot Quentin Tarrantino movies actually. When I saw Pulp Fiction it was the first time I’d been to a movie where the audience applauded after. So . cool .

I wonder if Mr. Blonde or Vincent Vega would enjoy these roasted almonds?

But, I digress. 🙂

Like I said, these are super easy. Stir your almonds, some fresh lime juice and for the coconut component I added a trio of sweet goodness. Coconut oil, coconut sugar and of course some shredded coconut for a little texture.

Off they go to get toasty in the good old oven.

Make sure you give them a stir around halfway through to avoid hot spots.

Out they come looking fabulous. The one caveat for roasted almonds is having to wait the hour for them to cool off. Don’t skip this step. Trust. Almonds right out of the oven taste soggy and gross. Not good. We want good, right? Right.

COCONUT! Oh Yes! I've done this before using lime juice and that alone was awesome, but now coconut too! OH WOW!

This savoury variant is definitely my cup of tea!! I just need to stop being lazy and start making my own nut mixes at home, it looks so simple and a lot healthier than the stuff you get in supermarkets.

Absolutely! It really is simple and so nice to know exactly what ingredients are used. No creepy preservatives, etc. Have a great weekend Sara. :)
