Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of raw almonds
  • 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper (up to 2 tsp if you like more heat)
  • 4 tablespoons of organic agave or honey
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or foil.
  2. Into a bowl place your almonds. Then add cinnamon, sugar, cayenne, agave or honey and vanilla. Toss to coat each nut. Spread the nuts evenly on the cookie sheet lined with a baking liner or parchment. Sprinkle with sea salt and then bake for 10 minutes. Remove and toss (they will be sticky) and then place back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool and store in a covered container.

  1. I went by your instructions, followed them to a T. My almonds turned black and were terribly burnt. Also, you should know, my oven runs cool. I was quite angry because almonds are a fortune out here.

  2. I’m sorry your result ended up poorly. This recipe has been shared with many people thru my website with great success. Actually, several lovers of this recipe noted that they ship beautifully (especially to our soldiers). You always need to check items your baking because everyone’s oven temps vary and would therefore avoid over baking or burning an item.

  3. Robin, the recipe is perfect as is! I’ve made it several times and it turns out great. I plan to make some for Christmas gifts. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
