Servings 2 cups


  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 cups raw unsalted almonds


  • Prep: Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining it with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  • Make this more or less spicy by adjusting the amount of cayenne. We found these to have just a hint of spice that is noticeable but doesn’t overwhelm the other flavors.
  • This recipe is easily doubled or tripled, so make a big batch!
