Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the sugar and salt. Set the bowl aside.
On a rimmed baking sheet pour the almonds and spread in a single layer. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until aromatic, stirring halfway. Remove the almonds from the oven and set aside.
Combine the maple syrup, water, oil, vanilla and cinnamon in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and add the almonds.
Stirring frequently, cook until almost all the mixture has coated the almonds (approximately 2-3 minutes). Pour the coated nuts to the bowl with the sugar mixture and stir until well-coated.
Pour the almonds onto the wax paper-lined pan arrange in a single layer. Let cool completely.
Once completely cool the almonds and the coating will become crunchy.
Store in an air-tight container.
