Garlicky air fryer roasted almonds come together so quickly in the air fryer! They're crunchy, satisfying, and oil free. If you don't air fry, don't worry - you can make these in the oven, too.

In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients, except the almonds, until you have a thick paste. Stir in the almonds, making sure to coat them really well (and really evenly!).
Air fryer directions
Transfer the almonds to your air fryer basket, and cook at 300° F for 6-8 minutes, shaking every 2 minutes to prevent sticking and so that they'll cook evenly.
Starting at minute 6, you'll want to check in every minute, tasting an almond for doneness. Your almonds are ready when they have hardened a bit but are still a little chewy in the center. They will get crunchier once they’re cooled. Trust me: I have burnt roasted nuts before, because I was waiting for them to get crunchy all the way through. Don’t be like me!
Let them cool to room temperature – about 10-15 minutes – then transfer to your storage container of choice.
Preheat the oven to 300° F.
Spread the almonds into a single layer onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, so that they cook evenly.
These will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container at room temperature. And, I’ll be honest, I kept mine for a full week and lived to tell the tale. But officially, I am saying 2-3 days.
