Chili Lime Spiced Roasted Almonds

Chili Lime Spiced Roasted Almonds


I had some raw almonds hanging around so thought I would find a way to spice them up so everyone would eat them.  Here’s what I came up with.

Prep time:  5 minutes

Cooking time:  15-20 minutes

Yield: 3 cups


3 cups raw almonds with their skin on

1/4 cup of fresh lime juice-about 2 limes-add more if you like more tang.

2 tablespoons of chili powder

1 tablespoon sea salt

2 tablespoons of honey- add more if you like a sweeter taste

2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter 


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.  In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients expect for the almonds.

3.  Now toss the almonds in with the other ingredients. Toss and coat well.

4.  Spread evenly in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

5.  Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

6.  Remove from oven and let cool completely, then serve or store in an air tight container.
