  4. Bake at gas mark 4 for 12-15mins. Adjust time where necessary depending on your roasting preference.

Notes
*If using parchment paper to line baking sheet, coat lightly with cooking spray before adding almonds.
The almonds can be quite sticky once cooled. A couple of tips to avoid them clumping together:
Toss them a couple of times as they cool, and break apart once cooled before storing.
