  • Ready In

  1. Spread almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in a cold oven.
  2. Turn oven on to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake almonds, stirring occasionally, until light tan and fragrant, 12 to 15 minutes. The nuts will continue to cook after removing from oven.
  3. Meanwhile, mix sugar and salt together in a small bowl; sprinkle about 1 tablespoon sugar mixture into a large bowl.
  4. Stir honey, water, and almond oil together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Add almonds; cook and stir until almonds have absorbed all the liquid, about 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer coated almonds to the large bowl sprinkled with sugar mixture. Sprinkle remaining sugar mixture over almonds; toss to coat evenly.
  6. Spread almonds onto waxed paper to cool completely. Store at room temperature in a tightly covered container or plastic bag.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Very quick and simple. Two of us finished these off in about 5 minutes. Now will have to make another batch tomorrow! Only thing I changed was I dusted a little extra sugar after tossing.

I’ve made many different roasted almond recipes And this was the worst. Unlike all other recipes The nuts stuck to the wax paper so badly they became one! I had to throw away 4 lbs of nuts!

These almonds are delicious, just as I suspected they'd be. The only change I made was to use lemon olive oil in place of the almond oil. These will satisfy my sweet tooth along with giving me...

I made these for the Beautiful Salad on this site. INCREDIBLE. No one in the house could stay out of them. Barely had enough for the salad. Am making more today for our New Year's Eve party....

Very easy! I used splenda in place of sugar and you can't tell the difference. The flavor is absorbed all through the almond!

Not my favourite nut recipe I've made, but it was good and very easy to make. I'd make again for sure. I think I'd like to try putting them in a low temp oven for 15 minutes or so after tossing ...

Hot Diggety! This is the yummiest, quickest and crowd-pleasing-est recipe I have ever seen for all these almonds I was gifted. I made 8 cups, took them to my husband's band gig, and they disappe...

I like roasting almonds because it makes them easier to eat. I made a slight mistake when I was cooking them, and burned the sauce, so most of the almonds are covered in patches of burned sauce....

This is the second time I have done this recipe, This time I used cashews. I left them cool to be handled and separated them. let them cool completely. Then sugar coated each one. Thanks, Happy ...

Awesome awesome!! So yummy, I took to work and everyone wanted the recipe!! I added a little cinnamon in the sugar and that added a nice flavor, just made another batch to take skiing tomorrow .
