Cinnamon toasted almonds

I have been obsessed with almonds lately.  They are so healthy and super easy to eat on the go.  I saw a recipe for sweet cinnamon almonds, so I decided to try toasting my own. 

Here is what I did:

2 cups whole almonds

*Preheat oven to 250 degrees and lightly grease a cookie sheet.*

1 egg white
1 teaspoon cold water

*Lightly beat the egg white & water.*

1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

*mix sugar salt and cinnamon*

*Pour egg white and water over the nuts, and stir until well coated.*

*Mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts.*

*Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the pan.*

*Bake for 1 hour stirring frequently*

If you like them extra crispy like me bake an additional 30 minutes stirring every 15 minutes.

Such a yummy & sweet snack treat! 


Gary said they were outstanding!

these look delish! and i'm pretty sure you could use truvia or splenda to make it that much healthier! move over wasabi almonds - there is a new treat/snack in town!

Ooh, I will have to try this because I know that almonds are super healthy for you but I can't eat them plain.

Yum! I bet it smelled so good in your house when they were roasting! Did you start with raw almonds?

I have to try this!

ALMONDS ARE MY THING. I snack on them so much. I used to hate them, and then one day something just clicked!
