A recipe for homemade sweet and savoury Rosemary Roasted Almonds that are simple and quick to make and full of flavour and crunch.
These rosemary almonds are absolutely addictive! They make a tasty snack and are an excellent accompaniment to drinks and cocktails. So they're perfect for when you're looking for something easy to serve at a cocktail evening or dinner party.
These almonds are also delicious tossed in a salad and make wonderful host or hostess gifts. I like gifting them in mason jars with a pretty ribbon.
I really love the coating on these almonds. The combination of fresh rosemary and chili powder, cumin and coriander make them really savoury. The touch of cayenne in the recipe gives them just the right amount of heat. The maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness and makes these almonds irresistible.
These Rosemary Roasted Almonds are also a great last-minute appetizer to make. They take less than 30 minutes to prepare and roast. They're ready to munch on once they've cooled to room temperature.
They do need some stirring half-way through the 20 minute cooking time. And remember that the almonds will continue to cook on the hot tray when you take them out, so it's best not to overcook them in the oven.
