Honestly, I’m not sure why I haven’t seen Almond Bacon before. It seems so natural. This recipe is super easy. Just make sure to watch them very closely as the cook so that they don’t burn.
The most amazing vegan "bacon" bits you'll ever try.
- 2 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or low sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup raw sliced almonds
Preheat your oven to 350 F.
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together everything except the almonds. Once the mixture is combined, add the almonds, and stir until all of the almonds are coated.
Spread the almonds onto a lined baking sheet in single layer, pouring any extra sauce over the top.
Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes, watching closely so that they don’t burn. When it seems like most of the sauce is dry and stuck to the almonds, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
