Keto Roasted Almonds Recipe

I love snacks even though I don’t snack a lot on the keto diet! But I (sometimes) want to be healthy when I do it. This easy roasted almond recipe is packed with some of my favorite flavors. Ingredients such as garlic, fresh rosemary, and a little bit of sugar free maple syrup help these flavors bind to the almonds without altering the overall nutty flavor. In addition, these tasty protein-packed nuts are full of essential vitamins and immune-boosting antioxidants. While this simple recipe may be a bit time consuming, it is well worth it because this scrumptious snack will keep fresh for a couple of weeks.

These roasted almonds also make for excellent additions to keto charcuterie boards or quick nibbles to serve at parties.

Are Almonds Keto?

Yes, almonds are approved to enjoy on the ketogenic diet. They contain approximately six grams of carbohydrates per one ounce. These popular nuts are also an excellent source of calcium, protein, potassium, healthy fats, and Vitamin E.

Although, be sure to consume almonds in moderation to avoid going over your carb limit for the day since they do contain more than other nut varieties.

Sugar Free Maple Syrup

We incorporated high-quality sugar free and sugar alcohol free maple syrup for this oven roasted almonds recipe. It contains about one gram of net carbs per serving. Since maple syrup’s texture is thick and sticky, it works exceptionally well to bind these almonds.

Several online retailers like Amazon and local supermarkets offer sugar-free maple syrup. It is super delicious and healthy! I recommend the brand Choc Zero that incorporates monk fruit as an alternative to sugar in their recipe.

How to Roast Almonds

Roasting almonds is a simple yet slightly time consuming process, but it is worth it as you are left with roasted almond made from whole, natural ingredients. Although, the nuts will be predominately in the oven, allowing plenty of time to prepare other dishes while they roast. To begin the process, preheat your oven and place the raw almonds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Then, roast them in the oven until they are golden brown, which should be after about twenty minutes.

Add your fresh herbs, spices, garlic powder, and sugar free maple syrup to the toasted almonds. Seasoning the almonds is entirely based on personal preference. I like rosemary a lot, and you could put up to two tablespoons of it in this recipe. In addition, I typically tend to use less salt than others prefer but feel free to add more if you would like.

After seasoning, toss your roasted almonds back into the oven for another fifteen minutes to absorb all the delicious flavors. Once they are fully roasted, remove the almonds and allow them to cool before serving.

Storage Suggestions

Roasted almonds boast a long shelf life. They will keep fresh in an airtight container or glass jar at room temperature for up to one month. You can also place the roasted nuts in the freezer or refrigerator for up to three months. They may last a little longer in the freezer, but I prefer to eat them before the three-month mark to ensure optimal freshness and flavor.
