Tamari Almond Recipe Ingredients

This recipe is so simple, only two ingredients! Yet don’t sleep on this one, it’s a delicious snack that you’ll fall in love with.

  • Raw almonds: Use whole, raw almonds for this recipe. You can find these in any bulk food store or in the nut section of most grocery stores.
  • Tamari: This is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. It still contains soy, so if that bothers you then swap it out for coconut aminos, a similar-tasting sauce without soy. You can find this in the international aisle of your local grocery store, or in an Asian supermarket.

I love the smoky, deep flavor these tamari almonds bring to my day and I can’t get over how simple they are to make.

How to Make Oven Roasted Almonds

With only two ingredients, you can guess that this is a fairly easy recipe to make. Yet nuts can quickly go from roasted to burnt, so this is not a recipe you want to forget about while in the oven.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Add raw almonds and tamari sauce to a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly to coat the almonds. There will be some liquid leftover yet that’s okay!
  2. Pour the almonds out onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and spread out evenly. Pour any remaining tamari from the bowl over the nuts to coat. All liquid will be soaked up into the almonds or evaporated during baking, so they won’t stay wet.
  3. Bake 10-15 minutes, closely watching to ensure the nuts don’t burn. Remove from oven and cool completely on the tray. Store in an air-tight container until ready to enjoy.

Tips for Roasting Almonds

1. If the almonds aren’t touching the sauce, then you won’t get the tamari flavor after toasting. Be sure to mix them well, then pour any remaining liquid from the bowl onto the almonds on the tray to ensure they are completely covered.

2. It is easy to burn almonds when roasting in an oven. If you know your oven runs hot, feel free to lower the bake time and check on them frequently to avoid burning.

3. Once roasted, this snack will last a while if you store it in a jar with a tight-fitting lid in a cool, dry place.

4. If you want extra crispy almonds, bake them closer to 15 minutes. Watch closely so you can whisk them out of the oven before they burn.

How to Use Tamari Almonds

While I love snacking on a handful while working or running errands, that’s not all these oven roasted almonds are good for! Roughly chop them once roasted and use as a crunchy topper for a kale caesar salad or mixed in with roasted butternut squash.

They make a great addition to a vegan charcuterie board or tossed into a healthy pasta salad. Basically, go nuts! Get creative with how you use them and have fun.

Oven Roasted Almonds FAQs

How long does it take to roast almonds in the oven?

Bake at 350°F for 10-15 minutes, depending on how hot your oven runs. Start checking on them around the 8-minute mark as nuts can go from done to burnt very quickly.

Do I need to soak almonds before roasting?

No need to soak almonds before roasting. I simply toss mine in a bit of tamari sauce to add a deep, salty flavor, then toss them on a baking sheet and stick them in the oven.

How do you make roasted almonds crispy?

The trick is to get them thoroughly roasted without burning them. I don’t recommend baking at high heat but instead, keep the oven at 350°F. The longer the roast, the crispier they will be. Just keep a close eye on the oven to ensure they aren’t getting too dark, and remember that they will get crispier while cooling 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.

  • Spicy: 1 cup raw almonds, 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice, pinch each: cayenne and sea salt

    Didn’t have nearly enough Tamari taste that we’ve had on tamari almonds before. We added sea salt and cayenne pepper after baking for some added flavor

    Hi Erin, you are so right, this is a great snack to have on hand! I am not a fan of raw almonds, yet I can easily enjoy a handful of these when I’m feeling hungry.

    1. It is such a great snack to have on hand! I’ve started making these and separating them into bags for an easy grab and go option!

  3. 4 stars
    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.

  4. 5 stars
    This is an awesome snack that I used quite frequently during the Plant-Based Cleanse. 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.

  5. 5 stars
