I never knew how easy it could be to roast your own almonds at home until I needed to make a few for a salad last weekend. Who knew?! I also had almonds on the brain after reading Kath’s delicious looking recipe for Maple Sesame Almonds! So, I made sure to pick up a few raw almonds on my weekend shopping trip. It was perfect timing because Saturday was National Almond Day! Here is a little recipe I thought I would share with you!
Honey Roasted Cinnamon Almonds
- 1 cup of almonds
- 4 tablespoon water
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Sprinkle of salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Spread almonds in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. (They should brown slightly and your kitchen will begin to smell like roasted almonds. Mmm…)
- Once baked for 10 minutes, remove the almonds from the oven. Combine almonds, water, honey, cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir to coat.
- Pour almonds back onto cookie sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for an additional 5 – 10 minutes.
- Transfer to wax paper, spread into a single layer, and let cool. Sprinkle with salt. Enjoy!

- Almonds are high in protein! They provide 6 grams of protein per serving.

- Almonds are chock-full of essential nutrients like vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium.
