Roasted Almonds

I am thinking about giving my daughter’s teachers a batch of these instead of the applesauce I was going to make for them.  This is so much easier.  They take only a minute to throw together and then 20 minutes in the oven.  Plus, they will make your house smell fabulous!

  1. I cannot find raw almonds, everyone is sold out with Christmas around the corner. I am wondering if I could use blanched or just the almonds you buy in the store. The ingredients are just almonds, no extra oil. Thank you!!!
      1. I think I'll try it in the slow cooker but add about the same amount of coconut oil as it calls for the other recipe so it dosen't burn, than finish them off in the oven for the last 15 minutes. I'll definitely get back to you after I make it. Thanks for your feedback Melissa.
        1. Just made this recipe in the slow cooker following the same method as your slow cooker maple glazed pecans, than I baked them for 15 minutes in the oven. OMG! Delicious! I'll definetly be making this again.
