18 Best Almond Recipes for Snacking - these are the perfect sometimes skinnier recipes to use your favorite almonds!

(Before we start…do you follow me on Facebook? I’ve started a Crazy for Crust Recipe Club and I want you to join me! Find all the info here.)

I love snacking on almonds. They’re one of my go-to after workout eats because they fill me up and give me a good crunch. I even love eating a handful with a banana for breakfast to fuel my workout. But as good as almonds are plain, did you know they’re amazing IN recipes? Of course, when I think about adding almonds to something, I lean towards chocolate clusters or shortbread bars, but almonds are so good for you that I try and add them to healthier recipes too.

You all know by now that Blue Diamond Almonds are my favorite; I’ve been working with them for over a year. I’ve been eating their almonds for longer than that: my mom used to stock up on the cans all the time when I was a kid. It was always a race to see who could get to them first!

  1. Looks like a lot of good recipes with almonds. A couple of them would be great Christmas gifts! Will be trying them. Really want to try the almond butter recipe. That would make a good gift paired with some really yummy bagels

  2. I took your survey! I love almonds, even just simply roasted. I always add them to my salads and bake with them all the time! They’re a great snack or a great crunch when added to most things. I sub almonds for most nuts in recipes.

  3. Finished the survey. I LOVE almonds! I’ve given vanilla & cinnamon glazed almonds as Christmas snack gifts.

  4. Love all the recipes especially the Coconut Mocha Almond Butter Espresso Balls. Survey done, and thank you for the chance 🙂

  5. Filled out the survey. Hoping my chance is fruitful!

  6. Great selection of recipes. I’ve checked a few out and am going to scroll through your post again in case I skipped over any gems. I also filled out the survey. Thanks for the recipe compilation and the chance to win a prize, too!
