  • baking sheet



  • Put the aquafaba in a large bowl and whisk until it foams and the aquafaba feels lighter.
  • Put the almonds and cover thoroughly. With a slotted spoon, remove the almonds from the aquafaba and place them on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle the chili powder on top, cover well. Make sure the almonds are spread out on the baking sheet.
  • Turn on the oven at the lowest temperature possible and put the almonds in for an hour.


  • Check and move the almonds after half an hour of the total time.
  • If you don't have Tajin chili powder at home or you can’t find it, soak the almonds in lime juice instead of aquafaba and sprinkle with the chili powder you have at home.
  • Do not forget to try the chili powder that you are going to use instead of Tajin, make sure it is seasoned. If not, add salt.
