Chili Lime Almonds

Servings: 5 cups
Author: Kelly the Kitchen Kop


  • 5 cups crispy almonds (soaking per the directions at that link, overnight with 1 Tablespoon sea salt)
  • 1 Tablespoon sea salt
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • Zest of 2-3 limes
  • whites from one egg
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 3 Tablespoons palm or coconut sugar dissolved in juice or use real maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Chili powder you can try Cayenne, Ancho, or whatever you like best


  • Once the almonds are about 3/4 oven dried (at a very low temp) or dehydrated, mix together the rest of the ingredients and brush on the almonds.  (You could also just toss the almonds in a bowl with the mixture, then spread back out onto the cookie sheet.)  Use parchment paper on the bottom so they're easy to get off the pan when they're done!  Continue drying or dehydrating until they're as crispy as you like — taste-test.  If needed, sprinkle more salt, chili powder, and/or palm or coconut sugar on top until they’re bursting with flavor, however salty, spicy, or sweet you like them.  Good luck keeping out of these. :)
