Almond Skin Bacon Bits

Plant Based & Food Waste - Almond Skin Bacon Bits


  • Almond skins (leftover from blanching almonds)

  • Olive oil or vegetable oil

  • Salt

  • Smoked paprika

  • Garlic powder (optional)

  • Onion powder (optional)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. Prepare Almond Skins: Ensure the almond skins are dry. If they are still wet from blanching, pat them dry with a paper towel.

  3. Seasoning: In a bowl, toss the almond skins with a small amount of olive oil or vegetable oil. Add salt, smoked paprika, and any additional seasonings like garlic powder or onion powder to taste. Mix well to ensure all the skins are evenly coated.

  4. Spread on Baking Sheet: Spread the seasoned almond skins in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  5. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes, or until the almond skins are crispy. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning, as they can go from perfectly crispy to burnt quickly.

  6. Cool: Once done, remove from the oven and let them cool completely. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.

  7. Store: Store in an airtight container at room temperature. They should stay crispy for several days.
