Tamari, the deeper flavored, gluten-free cousin of soy sauce, goes splendidly with toasted almonds. Each handful will satisfy a craving for a salty, crunchy snack. One batch of tamari almonds is enough for the whole week, but feel free to make several batches to keep on hand for an easy, nourishing snack.

Serves: 4


  • oven
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp tamari


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place almonds in a mixing bowl and pour tamari over the top. Stir well. Spread almonds on the baking sheet and drizzle any remaining tamari from the mixing bowl over the top. It will all be absorbed as the almonds are toasting.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes. The almonds will be dry to the touch and golden when they are finished. Let cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Store in airtight containers until ready to eat.


  • Swap almonds for the nut of your choice, or use mixed nuts.
  • Coconut aminos can be used in place of tamari for a soy-free option.
For some variations:
  • Sweet: 1 cup raw almonds, 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, pinch sea salt
  • Spicy: 1 cup raw almonds, 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice, pinch each: cayenne and sea salt

I went from exhausted mama to running across the Grand Canyon, riding & hiking to the top of the tallest waterfall in North America with my kids. How? I fell in love with the smoothies and plant-based meals you can find on my blog.

    The Almonds (all 3 recipes) were great just out of the oven and the first day. But after a few days, I didn’t care for them as well and switched back to just raw nuts. Not sure if I just tired of them, or they changed with the storage–they did seem less crisp, even though they were in sealed jars.

    Super easy to make and smell fantastic when baking.

    This is an awesome snack that I used quite frequently during the thrive reset. All the variations are great, but love the tamari and sweet the best. Easy to make ahead and portion out for a go to snack when you are on the road.

  8. I can’t wait to try this recipe! It looks delish. Are the variations meant to be in addition to the existing recipe?

    1. Hi Phoebe,

      We love all three varieties of almonds! When trying the additional variations swap out tamari from the original and try adding maple syrup, vanilla, + sea salt to 1 cup of almonds for a sweet version! Or try our spicy option! They’re all delicious!!
