Cinnamon almonds lightly toasted with a sweet sugar free tasting glaze. This snack is a great afternoon pick-me-up or addition to a salad.
You know those crunchable thick sugar coated almonds that you can get at special events like street fairs or art & craft events?
The enticing aroma of cinnamon gets to take notice every time! Tempting my tastebuds for sure!
Although those warm delicious almonds are probably not the best snacking choice because they’re loaded with sugar.
Not to suck the snack joy out of your munching, but knowledge is powerful.
Just 1/4 cup of those sugar bombs have about 16 grams of carbs, which can negate the good fiber (4 grams) and protein (8 grams) that almonds are made of.
How To Make Cinnamon Almonds Healthy
With this cinnamon roasted almonds recipe we cut the carbs to half (about 7 total/net 3) by using sugar alternatives like erythritol!
Erythritol doesn’t spike blood glucose or insulin levels, so it’s a good option for anyone that watches their sugar intake.
The best part is that these low carb almonds are just as delicious as any sugar coated almond that I’ve purchased!
How To Make Cinnamon Roasted Almonds
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large bowl beat egg white until frothy. Beat in vanilla extract.
- Fold in almond coating each nut.
- In a small bowl whisk together sweeteners, salt and cinnamon. Pour over nuts and fold into mix.
- Spread nuts on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Flip almonds over and continue to toast for an additional 10-15 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight container.
These roasted almonds are delicious right out of the oven (please cool before digging in), but here are some additional ways to eat these almonds:
- Add to popcorn for a sweet and salty flavorful combination.
- Make your own trail mix by mixing with plain walnuts and macadamia nuts.
- Lightly chop and add to salad
- Top on oatmeal or yogurt

Raw almonds? Or toasted?
Sorry for the delay Audrina. Both will work fine. The raw will have more moisture so not as much crunch as the toasted, it it just depends on your preference. Both options will be delicious.
These are some wonderful nuts – and who doesn’t love wonderful nuts? The most wonderful nuts are sweet nuts and these are the sweetest I’ve ever tasted. Thank you for introducing me to the best nuts around!
So glad these are a hit with you! They are delicious! I love giving them as gifts.
These would be gone so quickly at my house! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

I could see eating these every day! Incorporating them into all my desserts and on my cheese boards!
I love including these on my charcuterie boards!! That sweet crunch is the perfect compliment to salty meats and cheeses!
Cooked for 15mins, flipped and set timer for another 10. Checked on them after 9mins and they were burned. Oven temp is correct, not sure what happened but wasted a lot of ingredients:(
Hi Tami! I’ve never had a problem with overcooking the nuts. I’m sorry you didn’t have luck with this.
Perfection! My hubby hates that I can’t have sweets due to my diabetes. We eat alot of nuts for snacks so this recipe looked really good! I made these for HIM and he loved them. I didn’t tell him the ingredients until he had eaten over half the bag. He absolutely loved them and needless to say this woman was in heaven! Thanks
Most times my family never knows that I lightened up recipe using sugar alternatives! So glad this worked for you too!

Those are good looking nuts. I had to google your sweeteners as I’ve never seen them in our markets.
