  • Almonds can be slightly salted, if not, just add 1/8 teaspoon of salt.
  • Choose the cacao powder of your choice. I like to use raw cacao powder.
  • When roasting almonds in the air fryer it is important to shake the basket every 3 minutes. This will make for a more evenly roasted
  • Keep the almonds in an air thighs container for 4 to 5 days.
