Ingredients in Maple Roasted Almonds

As opposed to many recipes for candied almonds that contain tons of sugar, this recipe is sweetened only with a little maple syrup.

Another great thing about this recipe is that it only uses basic ingredients that are daily staples in our house. The only ingredients you need are:

Whole Almonds – Almonds work perfectly in this recipe to complement the maple cinnamon syrup but you are always welcome to experiment, substituting any different nut.

Maple Syrup – If you are able to find maple syrup from a local farm, that’s always our preference. But, if not, your local grocery store is sure to have options. Just be careful to read the labels and ingredients to make sure you are getting pure maple syrup and not the adulterated stuff.

Cinnamon – Cinnamon pairs so well with the sweetness of the maple syrup and works perfectly in this recipe. If you want to spice it up a bit, you could add a small amount of cayenne pepper but we typically keep it sweet to make it friendly for our whole family.

Sea Salt – In my opinion, a little sea salt should be added to every great recipe and there’s no exception here! Salt helps bring out flavor making your taste buds rejoice!

  1. It worked! I have always made candied cashews/almonds with white sugar and was skeptical this would set hard but it did! Not quite the same as candied nuts but very good and SUPER easy, thankyou!

  2. I made these for me and my grandson, and they were very good! But, Andre wanted pickle flavored almonds, we both love pickles a lot! So I took my pickle juice, made a syrup with it, and baked . They came out good, except the longer they baked, the less pickley they were. Can you think of anything that might help us make some dill pickle flavor almonds? Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. Hi! Dill almonds – you guys are thinking outside the box! Can’t say that I’ve experimented with that one before. Maybe adding some fresh or dried dill would help? Glad you enjoyed these!
