If you’re following a Whole30 diet plan or you’re Paleo or you just want some dang good almonds, here’s an easy recipe for Barbecue Almonds that will keep you on the road to success and give you an incredible snack that will honestly fill the “I want something crunchy and carby” feeling we all get. Wait, we all get that, right?

 

Don’t lie!

So I get that “I want a chip or cracker” feeling and I know I’m vulnerable, for the most part I’m home alone pounding out a novel and eating anything sounds more fun than working through writers block.  So I created these Barbecue Almonds as my pre-excerise snack. I get oils, flavor, crunch, protein and I set myself up for exercise by eating these as a snack and then heading out for a walk within the next hour. I also stay on track for my mostly Whole30 lifestyle.

Now about that “mostly Whole30 lifestyle”, whats up with that? Well we enjoyed out Whole30 experience so much that we decided to move to a 5 days full on total Whole30 and let it slack a little on weekends. So we can enjoy popcorn with our weekly movie night and maybe a corned beef hash burrito on Sunday morning. This is our first week really trying it and I am loving it. We do plan to do another whole Whole30 but for now this is working.

Instructions
  1. mix the almonds and the oil
  2. spread on a cookie sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, don't burn them
  3. while they roast grind up your spices, now of course everything is ground already but I find smoked salt to be very course and you want it to be fine so it will cover the almonds nicely
  4. use a pestle and mortar or a spice grinder
  5. once the nuts are nicely roasted
  6. remove them from the oven
  7. pour in a clean dry shallow bowl
  8. sprinkle the spice mix over, them stir to combine
  9. pour them back on the cookie sheet and let them cool completely
  10. store them loosely covered to keep them crispy and crunchy

 

If you like to soak your almonds before roasting them by all means please do!

If you’re worried about tomato powder, onion powder or smoked salt being Whole30 just make sure you’re buying pure ingredients that are ONLY what they say they are.  These are the spices I use
