Smokehouse Almonds

20140216-184439.jpgThis week at Publix, the Blue Diamond Almonds are BOGO. Aleyah LOVES the smokehouse almonds, but they have preservatives in them so I bought the lightly salted almonds, did a little research, and came up with this recipe. Aleyah is now happy and satisfied!

Smokehouse Almonds

  • 2 cups almonds

  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil

  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix together oil, liquid smoke, garlic, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add in almonds and stir to coat all the nuts. Cover and allow to sit for 30-60 minutes. Pour nuts onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15 min. Flip the almonds and bake another 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Store in an air tight container.

AND to kill multiple birds with one stone, I was able to oven-boil eggs, roast veggies and make chickpea almond butter cookies since the oven was on! Pretty well set for the first half of the week!

    I tried this recipe following the directions given and the nuts were way fact I took them out of the oven 5 min early…either there was a mistake in the cooking time or the temperature was too high…needless to say these weren’t good at all!

    • I’m sorry they burnt because they are delicious! Did you use a cast iron skillet? It may be the pan you used since pans retain more heat than others. Next time, flip them after about 5 min. and bake another 5 and see how they end up.
