Roasting almonds is easy and doesn’t require much effort to get great results. This dry roast method will work for whole, chopped, sliced, or slivered almonds. 

  1. Spread your almonds out in a single layer on a large baking sheet. 
  2. Place your baking sheet in the oven and roast your almonds at 325°F until lightly browned. Use the following time recommendations, depending on the type of almond: 
  • Whole: 9 – 12 minutes 
  • Chopped: 8 – 10 minutes 
  • Slivered: 6 – 8 minutes 
  • Sliced: 7 – 9 minutes  

Tip: Remember to give them a stir about halfway through in order to prevent burning. It’s also worthwhile to keep an eye on them. Every oven is different, and even a few seconds can result in burnt almonds!
