How to Roast Almonds

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Almonds -- roasting them at home is an easy way to boost their flavor!

When you know how to roast almonds, aka Geröstete Mandeln, at home, you can make any of your recipes that include nuts better. 

Roasting them crisps them and heightens the flavor.  Roasted almonds are just more delicious than raw ones.

You can use them in desserts, sprinkled in vegetable dishes - especially green beans -- and even just to eat the way they are.

Roasting or toasting almonds is easy - the only thing you need to do is to stay in the kitchen to make sure you don't let them burn. 

You'll need to keep your eyes on them because you don't want them getting too dark.

Once you take them out of the oven, they will continue to roast a bit more before they cool down.

Make sure that they are completely cold before you store them. If you seal them in a container too soon, you'll find condensation in the container and the nuts will become soft.

By the way, this is the same way how to roast nuts such as hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts. Just be careful how long -- don't overdo it.

How to Roast Almonds

When you know how to roast almonds, aka geröstete Mandeln, at home, you can make any of your recipes that include nuts better. 

Roasting them crisps them and heightens the flavor.  Roasted almonds are just more delicious than raw ones.

Prep Time

5 minutes

Bake Time

20 minutes

Total Time

25 minutes

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. Put the raw nuts on un-greased baking sheet. 
  3. Place in the oven and stir about every 5 - 10 minutes. 
  4. Depending how dark you want the nuts will determine how long they stay in the oven. (usually about 20 minutes)
  5. Once cooled, chop them, grind them, or leave whole.

Notes/Hints:

  • If you buy slivered or slices almonds, you can roast them the same way. Be careful they don't burn. They will only take a few minutes. 
  • To avoid losing flavor or toughening them, do not over-roast. As the nuts cool, they tend to become darker and crisper.
