Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Cinnamon Roasted AlmondsOver the summer I tried some cinnamon almonds made by my friend Cathy at Wives with Knives. The almonds were amazingly delicious and my kids, especially my daughter, loved them. I picked up a bag of plain almonds recently and decided to try to recreate those fantastic nuts. My son and I had a great time making these tasty treats together. They were crunchy, salty, and sweet – the perfect combination. Thanks for inspiring me to make these almonds Cathy.

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds:


  • 1 lb of unsalted almonds
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
