Honey Roasted Almonds

These honey roasted almonds are a real nutty treat. Roasted whole almonds coated with a combination of honey, sugar and salt. Sweet, salty, and crunchy! Almonds are a super food and highly beneficial. So enjoy them in moderation or they would have a negative impact on your waistline.

Recipe Source: Cooks
  • 50 g Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Clear honey
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 2 tsp Olive oil
  • 300 g Almonds, skin on
  1. Place almonds in a single layer in a baking sheet and bake at 180C/350F for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are tan to light brown in colour. Thoroughly mix the sugar and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Mix the honey, water and olive oil in a heavy saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Add in the roasted almonds and cook and stir constantly until all of the liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the almonds to a large bowl. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over and toss until they are evenly coated. Spread the almonds out on a parchemet paper. When cool, store at room temperature in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.

What a coincidence! I made cinnamon roasted almonds last night, but no good, I think I'm kind of slow in spreading them after roasting :(

I still have more almonds, I would try the way you created :)

Happy Week ahead!

Dajana 17/10/10 19:02

Those almonds are gorgeous, but risky as well, I'd need strong self control :)))

Excellent snack! They look amazing!

Mo 18/10/10 02:42

I think it would be unsafe for me to make these for myself (I'd eat all of them in one sitting haha), but these would make awesome Christmas gifts, I think! :D

Betty @ scrambled hen fruit 18/10/10 03:24

These sweet salty almonds sound yummy! They'd be great as a snack or to give as gifts. :)

Sometimes moderation sucks! These look too good to resist!

busygran 18/10/10 06:36

WoW! My kind of snack - crunchy crunch!

Ivy 18/10/10 07:15

I love these roasted almonds. They make them here in Greece especially in Kephallonia and Cyprus and I think these are of Italian origin and we call them "mandoles" (mandorla means almond in Italian). I have made them a couple of times and they are really very addictive. We also make something similar in Cyprus with blanced almonds. Thanks for reminding me of them and I will try your recipe as well.

j3ss kitch3n 18/10/10 07:33

I am going to get some almonds for this :) Thanks, Angie for this great snack...imagine how heavenly this would be..me sitting in front of the idiot box with this honey roasted almonds...I would be the culprit instead ! :p

maameemoomoo 18/10/10 11:27

I do love honey roasted nuts....strange that I have never tried to make them myself! Thanks for sharing, I will be trying this soon!

Emily Z 19/10/10 17:12

Mmmm, I love it in the mall when you walk past the kiosk where they sell roasted nuts and it smells soooooo good. I can only imagine the smells in your house if you do your own! Makes my tummy grumble a little!

whatsfordinneracrossstatelines 19/10/10 18:03

I love snacks this like, that is the problem, they have a negative impact on my waistline!

Evan @swEEts 19/10/10 18:52

This might be a fabulous way to sweeten up some almonds that just can't seem to get eaten otherwise :)

What a fantastic recipe! Love almonds but more so if they are prepared this way!

Monet 26/10/10 05:43

These sound so good. I love almonds on their own, but these sound like they would knock my plain almonds out of the water! They would be perfect to serve at holiday parties or to give out as gifts. There is nothing better than sweet nuts! Thank you for sharing, Angie.
