These salted almonds are super simple to make and they are very delicious. We normally use these almonds as a pre-dinner snack when having guests or pack them in small bag and bring them to work. They are perfect as a healthy snack in the late afternoon when you are just really hungry and the dinner is still hours away.
These homemade salted almonds are simple to make and it takes only about 40 minutes to make a batch. First let the almonds soak in a brine for about 20 minutes and then bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes – and that’s it. If you are more into a sweet almond snack I would like to recommend these sugar roasted almonds which is a traditional Nordic treat especially during Christmas and the winter months. They are also super delicious and great as a snack for special occasions.
