Can anybody tell me how to make yummy roasted almonds? I've seen them made by coating the almonds with something and then putting them in the oven on a cookie sheet... but I have no idea what that something is or how to make it. If someone could enlighten me, that would be great.

I know it isn't a great answer, but I just did a google search on "roasted almonds" and got a bunch of recipes that look good. I checked my cookbooks and somehow none of them have a recipe. Do you want sweet ones or more salty ones? Seems the sweet ones use honey, but I have done it with olive oil and sea salt I think... my mouth is watering just thinking about some! Can't wait to see if someone has a good simple recipe!

my friend makes chili-roasted almonds by tossing almonds (whole or chopped) in a bit of oil, then shaking with chili powder, cumin and salt. following that, spread on a cookie sheet and roast at 350F, watching carefully and stirring often. they are really good in a salad with grapefruit and avocado!

i prefer to roast nuts in a dry frying pan, so that i can watch them more carefully and avoid any burning.

a sweet recipe would be great!

you know what stinks? the sweet ones smell fantastic, but they taste kind of crappy. Those chili roasted ones sound fabulous though, I am all about spicy stuff YUM!

You don't actually have to add anything to almonds to roast them --- just spread them on a cookie sheet, put it in the oven at about 350 for around 10-15 mins, stirring the almonds around occasionally. The texture of the almonds changes, giving them a lovely flavour. (This is also the preparation for making almond bark --- once the almonds are cool, you can toss them in melted chocolate and spread to cool on parchment-paper lined cookie sheets.)

Of course, if you do want to add more zing, you can coat them in a little bit of oil and add a spice mix of your choice. My aunt does a fantastic curried almond, with curry powder, some paprika, a dash of cinnamon, and (I think) a tiny dash of allspice. Almonds are pretty flexible, in terms of what they'll go with --- you can definitely experiment!

I dry roast them and toss them in a little olive oil mixed with brown sugar and fresh rosemary. They're fabulous!

I use this recipe for Cinnamon-ROasted Almonds. Like the ones they sell at amusement parks and such. They're soooooo good. Mm...maybe I should go make some more now.

INGREDIENTS:
1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water
4 cups whole almonds
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 
DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
2. Lightly beat the egg white; add water, and beat until frothy but not stiff. Add the nuts, and stir until well coated. Mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts. Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the prepared pan.
3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until golden. Allow to cool, then store nuts in airtight containers.

Funny that you guys are posting this.... I just made the cinnamon roasted almonds this morning using that exact same recipe -- they turned out great!  I highly recommend it for those with a sweet tooth.
