Honey Roasted Cinnamon Almonds

Cinnamon Almonds

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
Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 4 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. 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…)
  3. Once baked for 10 minutes, remove the almonds from the oven. Combine almonds, water, honey, cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir to coat.
  4. Pour almonds back onto cookie sheet and spread into a single layer.  Bake for an additional 5 – 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer to wax paper, spread into a single layer, and let cool. Sprinkle with salt. Enjoy!

PS: Did you know?

  • A single serving (1 ounce) of almonds is 23 nuts.
  • Almonds are high in protein! They provide 6 grams of protein per serving.
  • They are high in heart healthy poly- and monounsaturated fats.
  • Almonds are chock-full of essential nutrients like vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium.
