Home-made Roasted Salted Almonds – Great Climbing Snack

Finding alternatives to sandwiches is a challenge.  I am forever thinking about which tasty morsel to shove in my pack when I go for days out climbing and, as I'm trying to avoid eating bread at the moment, it has become more difficult to just grab something on the go.

The other day however, my friend Geri brought these tasty little morsels to the climbing centre and I can’t stop making and eating them.   When I gave them a go myself I found that they are quite easy to make (as long as you don't burn them!), much cheaper than the supermarket packs and, after some quick research, I realised they are really good for you too.  They're absolutely packed with vitamins, minerals and good fats that help to keep us healthy in all sorts of ways*.

Recipe for Roasted & Salted Almonds

500g whole almonds
2 tablespoons salt
Water

What to do:

Put the almonds onto a baking tray.
Sprinkle water over (so that the salt sticks to the almonds).
Sprinkle the salt and toss the almonds so they’re covered evenly.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Keep an eye on them – they burn really easily.
Toss them if needed to help them toast evenly.

Variations

Sprinkle any of the following onto the almonds along with or instead of the salt:
Cinnamon
Paprika

Hope you enjoy these as much as I have.  Thanks Geri.
