Servings 1 cups


  • 1 1/2 cup almonds
  • 3 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute I used KetoseSweet sugar substitute
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon avocado coconut, or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • 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.
