Smoked Almonds

I’m always looking to switch up my snack game and almond are a super easy ingredient to customize. Today I was feeling like something a little savoury so Smoked Almonds, it is. If it’s sweet you’re looking for, try these Maple Cinnamon Roasted Almonds or if you feel like something really different, these Coconut Lime Almonds are cool too.

But, today we are smokin’. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve used this liquid smoke in the past for coconut bacon, but other than that it has sat on the shelf. Pairing it up with almonds is a match made in a hot heaven. I’m sure heaven is warm anyway, right? I mean, it’s heaven. The weather has got to be good.

Give your almonds a good coat with the liquid smoke, olive oil and maple syrup. You want them to look all nice and shiny. This will help the spices stick really well to each almond.

Speaking of spices, I used nutritional yeast in the seasoning blend. If you haven’t heard of ‘nooch’, it is actually super high in B vitamins (energy!) and contains both iron and zinc. Boom! It gives a kind of cheesy flavour. I use it all . the . time . when I make this whole grain salad and it’s also great in soups like this ‘cheesy’ cauliflower soup. You can pick it up at your local bulk store.

Once your almonds have been seasoned they are ready to roast. Check on them and give them a good stir once or twice to make sure they aren’t getting burnt. Smokey = good. Charred = bad.

You also have to respect the cool down period, post roast. Trust me on this one. Almonds right out of the oven are funky in bad way.

We gobbled these right up. Enjoy!

  1. Smoky almonds sound incredible Sharon. I’ve used nutritional yeast in a few recipes before and now it’s just kinda sitting in my cupboard like, “when are you gonna use me?” I think I could give this a try ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I know, right? That’s the same with me. You never really use too much of it, either. You would love these! Maybe to enjoy with a beer on the weekend? ๐Ÿ˜‰
