A quarter cup is technically 2oz, but anything you can make fit in a measuring cup you should measure that way for portions.

It depends on the size of the almonds. Basically, it's a handful of almonds. A small handful though.

I used to measure the nuts all the time but now I can eyeball them and be pretty accurate. I still measure once in a while to make sure my eyeballs haven't grown. LOL

If I had some almonds at home, I'd measure them for you but I only have pistachios and cashews.

40-48 almonds in 2 oz. according to Ask.com, and 1.5 oz is 1/3 cup.  How long after surgery were you allowed to have nuts?  I was just reading over my food lists and they are listed under the foods to avoid, but they have so much protein I'm not sure why.  Thanks!

I don't have any whole almonds here or I'd do the hard work of figuring it out. Here's how:

1. Get a 1/4 cup measuring cup.

2. Get your almonds.

3. Fill the 1/4 cup measuring cup with almonds.

4. Count the almonds in the cup.

5. (optional) Put the almonds on your food scale and record the weight for future reference.

Oh good, I'm relieved that's a duh :-). Seriously, no sarcasm at all. You know how people can be sometimes, um, no thought whatsoever involved :-/. Handy guesstimate tool: 1/4 cup is approximately what fits in the cupped palm of your hand without going into your fingers. 1/2 cup kind of flatly fills your whole cupped hand. 1 cup is a small woman's fist. (I wear M/L women's gloves and my fist is closer to 1-1/2 cups.)

ETA: Another handy office guesstimate tool: 1 oz. by weight is a long envelope and 3-4 sheets of copy paper.

Well I just did it for you.  I got 30 almonds in 1/4 cup and then poured them onto the scale and they weighed 30gms..or approximately 1 oz.

 This was just what I was searching for., thanks. Some of the other answers were mixing up weight oz and liquid oz.
