These sweet and crispy honey roasted almonds are a perfect healthy snack. They’re quick and easy to make, but keep in mind that the almonds will burn quickly, so be careful while they are in the oven!
Spread 2 cups of almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and place into a cold oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
For this recipe you will need a few simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand – unsalted almonds, honey and sea salt. You will also need a little extra granulated sugar to help the honey syrup adhere to the nuts, along with some optional spices like cinnamon or chile flakes (or both).
You can go the low temperature, longer route of oven baking for these almonds or take a short cut and use your stove top instead. Either way they will turn out amazing.
Roast the almonds in a 350 degree F oven for about 10 minutes until lightly browned. You will know they are done when you hear a slight hissing noise (like air trying to escape from a closed container). Stir the toasted almonds into the honey mixture, spreading them out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and letting them cool completely. Enjoy! These make an irresistible snack and they store well in a jar.
A few simple ingredients and you’re ready to enjoy this sweet and salty snack. Perfect for your lunchbox, 3pm pick me up or nibbles at parties.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (this makes cleanup a breeze). Spread almonds into a single layer and roast until light tan and fragrant, 10 minutes.
While almonds are roasting, mix sugar and sea salt together in a small bowl. Once almonds are roasted, pour over the sugar mixture and stir to coat evenly. Spread back onto baking sheet and let cool completely.
When almonds are done, they will hiss a little in the oven. This is a sign that they are properly toasted! They won’t be crunchy right away, but as they continue to cool down they will crisp up. These honey roasted almonds are great for adding crunch to smoothie bowls, sprinkled on top of granola or even mixed into popcorn for the ultimate movie snack.

You can use your oven or microwave to roast the almonds. Just make sure to line your baking tray with parchment paper. This will help prevent the almonds from sticking to the tray. Once the almonds are roasted they will be quite soft, but they will get more crunchy as they cool down.
If you are using the oven, cook the almonds until they are a light golden brown. Then remove the tray from the oven and spread them out onto a piece of baking parchment paper. Let them cool completely before breaking them apart. Once cooled they will be ready to be stored in an airtight container.
