Easy Cinnamon Almonds

These roasted cinnamon almonds are a sweet, crunchy treat that’s perfect for sharing or gifting!  


  • 1 pound raw almonds (about 3 1/4 cups)
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat The Oven & Prep Your Pan. Start by preheating the oven to 250 degrees F. Set out a cookie sheet/sheet pan for later. (Don’t line it with parchment or foil–it interferes with the dehydrating process)
  2. Combine The Cinnamon Sugar Mixture. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk or stir until very well blended and set aside.
  3. Froth The Egg White And Vanilla. In a large mixing bowl, combine egg white and vanilla. Use a hand mixer to beat the egg white 1-2 minutes, or until just frothy. This works with a whisk, too, it’ll just take longer. You don’t want it super liquid (not enough beating) and you don’t want to whip it to stiff peaks (too much beating!)
  4. Coat The Almonds. Add almonds to the frothy egg white mixture and stir to coat. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture and stir again, until all almonds are well coated.
  5. Bake The Almonds. Spread the cinnamon-sugar almonds out into an even layer on your prepared baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven at 250 degrees F. for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. (Bake the full time, or the cinnamon-sugar coating won’t be as dry and crisp as you need.)
  6. Cool Completely. Remove the almonds from the oven and cool completely on the baking sheet before storing.
  7. Serve Or Store. Store cooled cinnamon candied almonds in an airtight container, jar, or bag at room temperature 2 weeks, or freeze for 1 month.
