Ingredients

  • almonds – raw 
  • maple syrup – adds that sweet maple flavor
  • coconut sugar – any granulated sugar will work
  • cinnamon  
  • salt

We like to use coconut sugar as a swap for white or brown sugar. This toasty-flavored, natural sweetener is low in the glycemic index and has less sucrose than refined white sugar.

This recipe is gluten-free and has no eggs or egg white so it is a vegan-friendly recipe also.

Instructions for this recipe

First, preheat the oven and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Place the almonds in a bowl.

Meanwhile, warm the maple syrup in a small saucepan. 

Then, pour the warmed syrup over the almonds and stir to coat them.

Next, make the cinnamon sugar mixture by combining the cinnamon, coconut sugar, and salt in a little bowl.

You can use a fork or a little whisk to do this.

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar onto the almonds and stir again.

Give them a good stir so that that each almond has been coated.

Finally, spread them out on the parchment lined sheet into a single layer.

Give them a bit of space as this helps them to roast better. Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet

When the cinnamon coated almonds come out of the oven they are deep brown in colour, almost caramelized.

Let them cool to room temperature before eating for maximum crunchiness.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly
    benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested
    feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to
    hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

    1. Warning! I could not stop eating these and the entire batch disappeared quickly:) I hope you enjoy them like I did.
