Need a simple, delicious appetizer, snack or food gift? Make a batch of Easy Smoky Almonds, covered in sauce, and roasted to perfection!

Years ago I found a recipe for smoked almonds and jotted the recipe down on a 3×5″ index card. I’m not sure of the source for the original recipe, since I didn’t write it down at the time. The recipe card was put into my old, well-worn recipe box, where it sat for years.  After re-discovering it, I knew I had to make these yummy snacks again (and take photos).

The recipe is simple. Unblanched almonds are mixed with a simple mixture of Liquid Smoke, water, and vegetable oil. After being covered with flavoring, they are roasted in the oven for 20-25 minutes. They come out of the oven wonderfully browned and crunchy! After roasting, the almonds are then lightly salted. They come out of the oven wonderfully browned and crunchy! YUM!

It really is super simple to make this recipe. The recipe as written will make one cup of Easy Smoky Almonds. However, the recipe is super easy to double or triple, depending on the amount of almonds you want. They’re a great snack (we love to munch on them)! It’s also fun to put out a bowl of the smoky almonds with other appetizers. You can also put them in a cute container and give them as a tasty food gift for celebrations or holidays.

Prepare The Almonds For Roasting

First, you will need to preheat your oven to 300°F. You will want the oven nice and hot, since it hardly takes any time to prepare the almonds for roasting.

In a small bowl, combine the liquid smoke and water. Most grocery stores sell Liquid Smoke. It is a highly concentrated liquid that is quite smoky flavored. This mixture is what will flavor the almonds well.

Water and liquid smoke are combined to help flavor almonds.

Place unblanched, unsalted almonds in a bowl, and pour the Liquid Smoke and water mixture over them. Stir well, to ensure all the almonds are coated. Once they are covered with the smoky flavoring, add a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Stir the almonds again, to fully coat them with oil.

Ready For The Oven

Cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper (or aluminum foil). Spread the almonds out on the paper in a single layer, and put the almonds into a preheated oven. Bake at 300°F. for 20-25 minutes. STIR THE ALMONDS A COUPLE TIMES DURING THE ROASTING TIME!

When done, the almonds will be crunchy and nicely browned. Remove the baking sheet of almonds from the oven.
