Honey Roasted Almonds

These Honey Roasted Almonds should come with a warning label.  They are really addicting.  Who doesn’t like roasted nuts?  Add in some honey and salt and you have yourself a delicious combination!  These Honey Roasted Almonds are perfect for snacking!


These would probably make a great gift as well.  They have a sweet salty taste that reminds me of kettle corn.  I LOVE kettle corn!  Probably why I could not keep my hands off yummy roasted nuts.

They are perfect for that time of day that you need something sweet, but do not want to grab a candy bar.  They also take only minutes to make.  If you like these, then you will probably love my Candied Pecans as well.

If you want to keep these totally vegan, you can use maple syrup instead of honey.  That works great as well.

  1. These just make me sad that I have such a severe almond allergy. :( I *love* honey roasted anything. Any suggestions on other nuts that this could work on?
      1. yes, both of these (though not a huge cashew fan). Any kind of peanuts, or is there a special kind I should look out for?
  2. love the recipe! 25 minutes was too long for my specific oven i took them out five minutes early and they were burnt :/ i did shake them every few minutes next time i will only do ten minutes my oven must be a super dooper fast cooker lol
      1. I've actually had this problem with quite a few of your recipes! Been very disappointed. My oven is only a couple years old, so maybe I do need to cut down the temp and/or time on your recipes? It is good to know that your oven is older and may not be quite up to par with mine :)
          1. You could an oven thermometer and that way you know if it is heating to the right temperature-easy fix!
  3. These look great! I want to make them right now but I don't have any parchment paper. Is there anything else I can use instead? Love your blog!!
    1. You can use a silpat if you have one. Or you can use foil and grease it well. Or just grease a baking pan well, but it maybe be a bit hard to clean afterward.
  4. I made these yesterday but they are all sticking together and hard to pull apart...maybe I didn't bake them long enough? Not sure what I did wrong! haha. Tasted yummy though!
    1. Sorry that happened. :( I bake them until the honey hardens and caramelizes. Some are stuck to each other, but I break them apart before storing in a jar. Almost like breaking apart peanut brittle or something. Also, I wait until they are completely cool before I store them. That may help them from sticking together as well. I am glad you liked the taste at least. :)
      1. Do you also try to spread them apart when you bake them? I've tried it twice now, and they're great for me (test batches before I gift them for the holidays), but I'm trying to figure out what I should do so it's not like almond brittle getting them apart. I let them cool and the excess honey cools as well, keeping them together in a kind of a sheet.
  5. Mine weren't hard when they came out of the oven...do they harden as they cool? and how long should i leave them to cool?
    1. They should be tacky when they come out, but will harden slightly after cooling. I wait until they are completely cool before I put in a jar for storage.
  6. These look awesome! One tip though, is to soak the almonds for 12 hours, then dry in a SUPER low oven or dehydrator. THEN proceed with the recipe! This unlocks the vitamins in the almonds, releases the phytases(enzymes that prevent nutrient absorption)AND makes them easier to chew AND they do not get stuck in your teeth as well!
  7. These are absolutely amazing. I followed the directions just as you gave them, but stirring rather than shaking them about every 5 minutes - cooked the full 25 minute time but that included taking them in and out of the oven to stir. Fabulous healthy snack. I can't wait to try doing the same thing with raw cashews and possibly peanuts - but I will have to lock them up to keep my hubby from devouring them in one sitting!
  8. Thanks for the recipe. It was fabulola. I was wondering whether I could use chicken salt instead as sea salt make me queasy.
    1. Awesome! I have another similar recipe with holiday spices on the blog too. https://mywholefoodlife.com/2012/11/28/sweet-and-spicy-holiday-almonds/
