A recipe I came up with when I had more almonds than I knew what to do with; a little bit of maple syrup goes a long way to making these roasted almonds taste like a real treat. To adjust sweetness for your own palette, simply alter the ratio of maple syrup to olive oil. If you want more spice, don’t be afraid to go for it with the cayenne!
Roasted Almonds Ingredients:
- 250grams raw almonds
- 3 tbsp high grade maple syrup
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- ½ tsp sea salt
Roasted Almonds How To:
Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / Gas mark 4. Line a large baking tray with some parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the coating. Add the almonds, and coat evenly in the mixture. Lay them out on the baking tray, making sure they are evenly spread out. You may need to cook in two separate batches.
Roast in the oven for 5 – 6 minutes, give them a shake, then return to the oven for a further 5 – 6 minutes. Remove when golden brown.
So tell me, what are your favourite nuts to roast?
