    1-4  cups  almonds, Butter or oil, Salt or seasoning ingredients

Roasting Almonds in the Oven

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Line a large, lightly colored baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place almonds in a single layer on the sheet.
    1-4  cups  almonds
  • Roast whole almonds in preheated oven for 9-12 minutes, sliced almonds for 6-8 minutes, and slivered almonds for 7-9 minutes. Stir nuts halfway through to prevent burning.

Toasting Almonds in a Pan

  • Heat a medium to large, non-stick dry skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Add no more than 1 cup of almonds to the skillet in a single layer.
    1-4  cups  almonds
  • Toast sliced and slivered almonds for 2-3 minutes and whole almonds for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.


  • Nutritional information is for 1/4 cup of whole almonds.
Storage Instructions:
While toasted walnuts do not need to be kept in the fridge, they will last longer if they do. Keep them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2-3 months, in the refrigerator for up to 6 months, and in the freezer for up to a year.
Recipe Tips:
  • Plain and raw. Avoid roasted nuts at the store or you will burn them.
  • Add some spice. Choose your favorite seasonings, along with butter or oil and salt, to really make these almonds irresistible.
  • Avoid dark. Stick with a light-colored baking sheet so the almonds don't burn.
  • Save time. Lining your baking sheet with parchment paper will make clean up a breeze!
  • Double it up. Store roasted almonds in the freezer for whenever the craving strikes.
