Homemade Roasted Almonds VS Store Bought
Of course, I love snacking on raw almonds as a healthy snack throughout the week. But, sometimes I like to spice things up with these ranch roasted almonds.
Homemade Roasted Nuts
When you make your own homemade roasted nuts, you can control the ingredients, including the types of oils used as well as the amount of seasonings and salt.
Store Bought Roasted Nuts
Most store bought roasted nuts contain pro-inflammatory vegetable oils. When I make homemade roasted nuts, I use avocado oil because it has a high smoke point and doesn’t cause inflammation in the body like vegetable oils do.
Additionally, the flavored roasted nuts at the store usually contain low quality salts, added sugars, and artificial preservatives and flavors.
Ranch Roasted Almonds Ingredients
This homemade roasted nuts recipe is super simple, healthy, and sugar free.
This homemade roasted almonds recipe starts with raw, unsalted almonds. It’s important that you start with raw almonds, not pre-roasted almonds. Additionally, you can use any type of raw nuts and/or raw seeds for this recipe. The measurements will remain the same. So, feel free to make ranch flavored mixed nuts, if you want to add things like pecans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, etc.
The main reason I choose to make homemade roasted almonds and nuts is because I like to control the type of oil used. As I stated earlier, most store bought roasted nuts contain pro-inflammatory vegetable oils. Instead, I’ll be using avocado oil for these ranch roasted almonds because avocado oil has a high smoke point and doesn’t cause inflammation in the body.
Homemade Ranch Seasoning
The ranch seasoning mixture for this recipe can be used when making any type of roasted nuts or seeds. Feel free to make ranch roasted sunflower seeds, pecans, walnuts, or even a mixed variety. And, always use a high quality, unrefined sea salt or himalayan rock salt.
