My husband is a nut freak. He’s a nut too, but he is also a big time nut fan. They disappear by the bagfuls around our home. Whenever I purchase nuts for a recipe they must be hidden as soon as I get them home or they will be gone before I get a chance to grab the measuring cups. Not that there is anything wrong with enjoying nuts as a snack. In moderation, nuts are a healthy choice for sure. And with a little honey and cinnamon added, they’re a sweet choice too. These Candied Almonds are the perfect combination of nutty goodness with a touch of sweetness and warm cinnamon. They are so easy to make. These Candied Almonds are roasted in a combination of honey, cinnamon, brown sugar and a bit of salt. These sweetened nuts are super easy to make too. And that’s a real good thing when you have a nut crazed husband hanging around the oven waiting for a handful or two.
Honey Cinnamon Candied Almond recipes notes:
- Use the largest baking sheet available and line it with parchment paper or a silicon baking as the almonds are quite sticky and need room to spread out.
- Once the nuts have cooled they may need to be broken apart before storing.
- Store tightly covered until ready to serve
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

A sweet and simple healthy snack of roasted almonds with honey and cinnamon.
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 12 ounces shelled almonds
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 325-degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or baking liner.
- In a skillet warm honey, cinnamon and ginger over low heat, stirring until combined.
- Add almonds and stir to coat almonds. Remove from heat.
- Sprinkle in brown sugar and salt and combine.
- Spread coated almonds on lined baking sheet and bake at 325-degrees F for 12-15 minutes. Slightly adjust cook time to toasted/roasted preference.
- Allow to cool, tossing a couple of times as they cool to avoid them sticking together.*
*The almonds can be quite sticky once cooled. A couple of tips to avoid them clumping together:
Toss them a couple of times as they cool, and break apart once cooled before storing.
If using parchment paper to line baking sheet, coat lightly with cooking spray before adding almonds.
This looks delicious! How many calories?
Love these, little tip for everyone else, they are sticky. When you take them out of the over and start stiring them up. Coat with a brown sugar flour mix that’s 4/1 or so and they will stop sticking together and wont stick to parchment either!
This recipe made the house smell AMAZING… so if nothing else, there’s that lol. I haven’t tasted them quite yet, but from what I tasted before the oven… wow. I’m getting so excited and tbh this combines all the things I love about this time of year. Even perfect for Yule celebrations! 😀
I will say I had no ginger, so I ended up using about maybe 1/8 t of pumpkin pie spice since that had pretty much the same combination in it anyway. TY!
Watch! Burnt,gooey sticky mess! Too much honey far too much salt and sugar as well? And the heat far too high,I can only think your ovens are cooler and not so efficient? Wasted 2 pack of perfectly fine nuts and half bottle of honey..recipe too American? I find US recipes have too much sugar/salt/seasoning but failed to see how this simple combo could go wrong……
