Tamari almonds are one of my favourite snacks and luckily they are ridiculously easy to make. Tamari almonds found in stores are usually not gluten-free friendly so your best bet is to make a big batch at home. All you need are raw almonds and some gluten-free tamari. Thats’ it! I like to buy my almonds in bulk and store them in the fridge for baking and snacking, nuts are much more affordable this way.
These make a great snack and are perfect to put out before dinner during the holidays or anytime really. My friends love them and are always impressed that I make my own (little do they know that this is the one of easiest things I make).
- 3 cups raw almonds
- scant 1/4 cup gluten-free tamari (any kind will work, I always use San J)
Heat oven to 300F.
Spread the almonds out in a single layer on a baking sheet (parchment optional) and bake for about 8-10 minutes, until they give off a nutty smell but aren’t yet toasted.
Place the almonds in a bowl and mix with the tamari. Let this sit for 10 minutes mixing every so often.
Return almonds to the pan with a slotted spoon and bake for an additional 10-20 minutes. The timing really depends on your oven. The almonds should be dry and nicely browned, but not burnt. Keep a close watch the first time you make this recipe. That’s it!
Store them in a airtight container.
