Rosemary Roasted Almonds

Jump to Recipe

We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. Santa brought our gift early this year, our new kitchen so we spent most of the day watching movies in our pj’s. It was nice to relax. We did cook up a nice dinner and were able to talk to our friend’s and family. It was a great day. If you are all sugared out from eating too many Christmas cookies, I have a healthy recipe for you to enjoy today-rosemary roasted almonds.

I love snacking on nuts, they are delicious and nutritious. Nuts are a great source of protein, contain heart healthy fats, and they are easy to eat on the go. I like eating plain nuts, but roasted nuts are even better. Candied Pecans are my favorite, but these rosemary roasted almonds are a close second. Whole almonds are seasoned with fresh rosemary, a dash of chili powder, salt and then placed in the oven to roast.

Our house smelled amazing while the almonds were roasting away. I sampled a few nuts as soon as I removed them from the oven and was very pleased with the results. The rosemary compliments the almonds nicely. These rosemary roasted almonds make a terrific game day snack or party appetizer. I am going to put a bowl of rosemary roasted almonds out for our New Year’s party. I know our guests will enjoy munching on them.

  1. YUM! I love rosemary AND almonds! I usually do spiced almonds, not sugary and NOW when I get home and have fresh rosemary — I must make these! Thanks for the yummy recipe! Glad y’all had a relaxing Christmas! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great recipe! I just have to share… our grocery store was out of Rosemary during Christmas! No fresh. No dried. NOTHING!! I was in panic mode. ๐Ÿ™‚ Next time I will have to stock up.. especially when I make these!!

  3. Have to combine almonds and rosemary next time I have a batch to roast – Friday I roasted a pint jar full so we have enough for a while – but these sound wonderful. A Happy and Healthy New Year to you both.

  4. great recipe. i think i’ll use even more rosemary next time! i served them with a cheese platter and they were a hit! thanks maria

  5. Sounds crazy but try rolling your almonds in lightly whipped egg whites then the spices. Bake as usual might want to butter the pan. After they done, it adds an extra crunch and shine to the nuts.

  6. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your website blogposts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  7. This is great as I now have an idea to add to my finger food cocktail party – am going to make a bunch of different flavored almonds to add to the hot foods, for snacking!
