Almonds would be my first choice.

It might depend on what the recipe is. But I'd agree that almonds would probably be a safe choice. I'd add walnuts to that too. However, if you wanted to play with flavors and take a different direction, the world of nuts is open to you: peanuts, cashews, macadamia, etc.

Brazil nuts are much larger but the nut meat texture is similar, the taste is pretty mild. Macadamia nuts might be a good fit but be warned they are very rich and properly the nut with the highest fat.
