Honey Roasted Almonds

Honey roasted almonds are a definite crowd pleaser and easy to make. I wanted to whip up a quick snack and only had a short time before guests came over. I had a ton of almonds from Costco and wanted to make something with them…so there you have it, honey roasted almonds!

Honey Roasted Almonds

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw almonds with skin
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees F. Lay almonds flat on parchment paper on a baking pan. Place in cold oven and let sit for about 10 minutes until roasted.
  2. In a bowl, mix together sugar and salt. Set aside for later.
  3. In a small pot, mix together water, honey, and oil. Let come to a boil. Take almonds from oven and place them into the pot. Let almonds cook in mixture for about 5 minutes absorbing the honey mixture.
  4. Using a slotted spoon scoop almonds from pot and place into a bowl while sprinkling the sugar/salt mixture in between scoops. Evenly coat almonds in mixture.
  5. Lay almonds flat on the same baking pan and let cool to room temperature. Serve!

When you roast the almonds, make sure they aren’t overlapping like below. I shook these until the almonds lay flat.

I recommend the slotted spoon because I drizzled the liquid mixture over top the almonds and they were a little too goopy. So I would use a slotted spoon next time. Then sprinkle the sugar salt mixture on top.

Mix it up.

Lay flat again on the baking sheet and let cool and dry. I would put a little more salt to taste at the very end.

Happy snacking!
