Skipping the skins every so often is a nice change of pace when it comes to deriving almond joy. These bare beauties are equally great for snacking, adding to recipes, or even grinding to make your own almond meal.
Even without their skins, blanched almonds are a potent power snack, with just as much protein and heart-healthy fats, and a substantial amount of anti-inflammatory vitamin E, bone-strengthening magnesium, and blood-supporting iron. Besides, if you simply prefer their look and mouthfeel, you're still better off than not eating them at all, and you'll still be doing your heart and body good.
And since many recipes specifically call for blanched almonds, they're good to have on hand in a pinch. Blanched almonds are especially good when roasted to bring out their flavor and darken their color a tad.
