Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Have you ever smelled the cinnamon roasted nuts at the mall or an arena event?  I think they smell so delicious.

Whenever I attend a sporting event with my hubby and I smell them I say I’m going to buy some, but then I always change my mind because they’re kind of expensive.  I’m glad I found this recipe a few years ago because these nuts taste very similar to those “other” nuts and my house smells heavenly from the baked cinnamon and sugar. And while this isn’t exactly a super healthy snack, I’m sure it’s better than cookies or cake. Isn’t it?

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds


  • 4 cups almonds
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. Combine the sugars, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Add the egg white to the bowl of a stand mixer; beat with the whisk attachment until it starts to foam.
  4. Add the vanilla and continue beating until it's very frothy and thick, but don't let the egg white form peaks.
  5. Add in the almonds and toss until they're well coated.
  6. Add the sugar mixture; stirring to coat the almonds well.
  7. Spread the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet and spread them out to a single layer.
  8. Bake approximately 1 hour, tossing every 20 minutes.
  9. Cool and serve or store in an airtight storage container.
