Yes, you can dehydrate almonds after soaking them. I do it all the time.
To me, if I dry them long enough they are just as crunchy as they were before I soaked them. I have used them in recipes and didn't notice any difference.
After dehydrating them, I keep some in the refrigerator for quick use, and freeze the rest for another time.

Personally, I think almonds, walnuts & pecans taste better after soaking & dehydrating. It's amazing to me how much brown liquid is poured off after soaking. No wonder they taste better. ( Brazil nuts & sunflower seeds as well.)

How long on dehydration time? Approximations of course. I have some in the dehydrator for the first time and I'm curious. Thanks.

At least 12 hours for me. Don't want to chance any mold.
