Cinnamon/Sugar Coated Roasted Almonds









In 1993 when I was doing my Clinical at Lima Memorial Hospital, someone's mom in the dept was selling these home made cinnamon coated almonds. That was the first time I ever tried them, and I loved them.
I did not get the recipe, but from my memory of that taste I tried to make them at home few times. They were not very common in the stores at that time, now you get them everywhere, but I still prefer my homemade recipe and here it is. Enjoy:)


Ingredients


Also preheat your oven to 250 F

* 1/4 cup Honey + 2 tablespoon water (may use 1 egg whites and 1 tablespoon water instead)

* 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

* 4 cups un-blanched almonds

* 1/3 cup granulated cane sugar

* 1/3 cup packed brown sugar

* 1/4 teaspoon salt

* 2 tbl spoon ground cinnamon

* Additional half cup sugar and 1 tbl spoon cinnamon mix together to sprinkle later if additional sweetness is desired


Method:


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Lightly grease a 10 x 15 inch pan.

Mix/stir honey, water, and vanilla. (If using egg white, beat egg white, water and vanilla together until frothy)

Add the nuts, and stir until well coated.

Mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts.

Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the prepared pan.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, pour all the almonds on this tray.

Bake for 40-50 min in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally, until golden.
Be sure to keep an eye on it and don't forget to stir in between with wooden spatula.

Allow to cool until can use hands to break chunks if stuck together

May sprinkle with additional sugar and cinnamon mix (~1/2 cup sugar and 1 tbl spoon of cinnamon) if additional sweetness is desired.

Can break the chunks to separate almonds if sticking together

Store nuts in airtight containers.


Yield ~ 4 cups.

Great gift for Holiday and Healthy snack too!! Yummmm...
