A superfood Snack! Sprouted almonds are almonds that have been soaked in water and sea salt and “sprout”, which ensures you’re eating a live food!
- 2 cups raw almonds
- filtered water
- quart jar with lid
- coffee filter
- small bowl
Measure almonds into a quarter jar. Fill with filtered water and cover with a coffee filter, securing with just the ring of the lid. Allow the jar to sit on the counter overnight.
The next morning, remove the ring and coffee filter and drain the water from the quart jar. Fill the jar again with fresh filtered water, swirl the almonds and drain the water. Replace the coffee filter and ring and using a small bowl, store the jar at an angle so excess water can drain out and air can circulate inside the jar.
Repeat the above step each morning and night until the almonds begin to sprout - you will see the shells cracking and small sprouts appearing.
Once all the nuts are sprouted, store them in a jar in the fridge for a few days or dehydrate them into crispy nuts using a dehydrator tray!
