I just love the smokiness of these almonds and that they are a perfect healthy yummy snack! These are great on their own or with some picnic supplies like fruit, pesto, cheeses and wine. : )
I remember eating these as a kid, it was kind of a staple for us girls. We would roller skate to the liquor store to get them and because the guys at the counter knew us they allowed us to keep our skates on! However they weren’t homemade like these! I make these a lot for Robby to bring to work so he won’t be tempted by all the sugary snacks everyone brings.
I like them with almost any sweet or dry white wine and they especially go great with beer!
Recipe – 3 Cups
- 3 Cups Raw Almonds
- 2 1/2 Tablespoon Expeller Pressed Grapeseed Oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoons Liquid Smoke
- 2 Teaspoons Sea Salt
- 1 Tablespoon plus 1 Teaspoons Coconut Flour
Mix almonds, oil and liquid smoke making sure all the almonds are evenly coated. Mix flour and salt together and add to the almonds until the oil is absorbed into the flour.
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spread evenly on a baking sheet.
Bake for 15 – 18 minutes, stir in 10 minutes.
Let cool and then put in a jar and shake.
*Shake before eating as the smoky powder falls to the bottom just like the store bought ones.
