Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Yield: 2 cups

Prep: 5 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


Ingredients:

2 cups raw unsalted almonds

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup coconut sugar

1 tbsp. pure maple syrup

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup water

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat add your water, coconut sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla and stir to incorporate.

  2. Add your almonds and stir.

  3. Stir continuously you will see the mixture turn from liquid to syrup to coating on the almonds. This process takes about 10-15 minutes. Refer to my YouTube video for reference.

  4. Once the liquid is gone and the almonds are coated place on a lined baking sheet and separate the almonds.

  5. Let cool for 15 minutes.

  6. Enjoy!


Note: I have made these with dark and light coconut sugar. I prefer the dark coconut sugar but they are tasty either way! These are very rich in flavor and perfectly sweet! A great alternative to the traditional cinnamon roasted almonds you can find at the fair.
