Pumpkin Pie Roasted Almonds.

September 12, 2012 Post a comment

If you follow my blog, you know I’m a pumpkin addict.  I start cooking with it the minute the kids go back to school and fall creeps into my psyche.  I love the warmth of the aroma and the taste is out of this world!  Funny enough, I don’t like pumpkin pie.  I can’t explain it but I whip up so many other great substitutions that I’m cool with it.

Super easy recipe…

Ingredients:

2 cups of raw almonds
3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice seasoning
4 tablespoons of organic agave or honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Sea Salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment or foil.

Into a bowl place your almonds.  Then add cinnamon, spice, agave or honey and vanilla.  Toss to coat each nut.  Spread the nuts evenly on the cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with sea salt.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Let cool and serve.

I love that you’re (apparently) serving these with beer. May I assume a pumpkin ale?

Reply

Ha ha. My husband has the beer on tap, unknown flavor. I don’t drink beer :)

These are delicious! And smell fantastic, my only problem was getting them off the foil when they were cool. I lost half of them cause they were covered in foil fragments… :( any tips?

Reply

robinr September 25, 2012 at 11:58 AM

Hmmmm…. I didn’t have that problem. Maybe try spraying your foil with a baking spray (olive oil Pam etc.) to see if that helps. If not, bake on a Silpat instead of foil. Hope this helps! Robin

As a trainer I am always trying to give my clients healthy yummy snacks, and this was perfect! Honey is a little high sugar for some, so I repalced it with organic Agave, they are absolutely delcious!! I made a big batch for me and my clients! :)

I used agave too, whichever I have on hand. Try my chili lime roasted nuts too… they are to die for! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Would this recipe work with walnuts or pecans or maybe a mixture of them all?

I haven’t but I’m quite certain they would be fantastic!

Rychelle October 6, 2012 at 11:33 AM

I just made these last night and they are delicious and made the house smell heavenly.

Because of the Agave they stuck together pretty good in the bowl. Does anyone have any good tips so they don’t come out in large clumps if I am serving it to company? Although, they are so goo I wouldn’t mind a large clump. ;)

Great pictures too!

Reply

robinr October 7, 2012 at 5:33 PM

If they stuck together, give them a toss mid-cooking to keep them from sticking. This should help. Robin :)

Bummer, these didn’t turn out for me. I think I may have burned them but the there’s something a little off about the taste. Will try again soon :)

Gina, Most oven temperatures vary so if you run a bit hotter or suspect you do, turn the temperature back down a little bit or keep a watchful eye on them. I’ve made several batches and had no issues. I hope they turn out for you. oxox Robin

That looks really yummy, can’t wait to try them, i ate raw and sometimes roasted Almonds everyday. Thank you for sharing Dr. Strand ! Can we have more recipe similar to this one, which is healthy and easy to prepare especially at this time of the year when you have friends and relatives come over, they would love this treat for sure !

Lisa D. January 18, 2013 at 9:44 AM

These are delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe – I made these to take to a New Year’s Eve party, and they were gone well before midnight :-)
2 tips – baking on parchment paper prevents the ‘stuck to the foil’ issue some bakers are having; wait for the almonds to cool before eating – right after coming out of the oven, they are chewy. If you can wait a couple of hours before eating them, the favors will be better and the nuts will crunch. Can’t wait to try the chili-lime recipe!

Reply

robinr January 18, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Thanks for the tips. I usually make them on a Silpat which helps too. Definitely wait till cooled or they’re like lava too :) Chili lime are my hands down fave~!

These sound delicious. I was just wondering if you knew how long they were good for? I am the only nut eater in my house, so I don’t like to make too much of something if I won’t be able to eat it quick enough :)

Covered in a tupperware type container, I would say 2-3 weeks or more. They never last in my house ;)
