  • 2 cups whole raw unsalted almonds
  • 2 teaspoons regular olive oil, or vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir until well-combined and the almonds are evenly coated.
  • Spread the almonds out in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  • Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once or twice during the cooking time (or just give the pan a gentle shake), until the almonds are nicely toasted. Keep an eye on them in those last few minutes to make sure they don't get too dark and that the spices don't burn.
  • Remove the pan from the oven, place on a wire cooling rack, and allow to cool completely (about 30 minutes). Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Store cooled almonds in an airtight container at room temperature. They should last at least a week or two.
