Toasted salt & pepper almonds are the perfect crunchy topping for salad, cottage cheese and more! They are super easy to make at home and so delicious!


  • 8 oz. sliced unsalted almonds
  • Olive oil (I used my Misto)
  • Salt (I used Pink Himalayan salt from Trader Joe’s)
  • Fresh black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350*.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Spread sliced almonds in a single layer on the parchment.
  4. Spritz the almonds with olive oil – you don’t have to drench them in oil, just spritz enough for the salt and pepper to stick to the almonds.
  5. Alternately, you can drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the almonds in a small bowl, stir to coat and then spread them over the parchment.
  6. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
  7. Bake for about 12 minutes – stir at 6 minutes, spread the almonds back out and bake another 6 minutes or until the nuts are toasted and brown but not burnt. Ovens bake differently, so just keep an eye on them as they get close to the 10-12 minute mark.
  8. Allow almonds to cool and store in an air tight container.
