Sweet and Spicy Roasted Almonds


Not your typical roasted almonds, these have a little kick of chili powder and the depth of more cinnamon than most recipes.

3 cups almonds


  • 1 egg white

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 cups whole almonds

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan.

  2. Combine egg white and vanilla in large bowl; beat until frothy. Add almonds and toss to coat. Pour almonds into a mesh strainer to drain excess liquid, 5 to 10 minutes. Return strained almonds to the bowl.

  3. Stir white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, chili powder, and salt together in a bowl. Sprinkle sugar mixture over almonds and toss to coat evenly. Spread coated nuts evenly onto prepared jelly roll pan.

  4. Bake, stirring every 20 minutes, until the seasoning clings to the almonds, about 1 hour. Allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.
