I’ve found my almond snack soulmate with this Cinnamon Maple Roasted Almonds recipe!

Not only are these almonds absolutely delicious with a pop of cinnamon and maple flavor, but they are also crunchily satisfying, fill your house with the most wonderful maple roasted scent (seriously, your whole house will smell amazing!), and provide lots of nutrients, healthy fats, and protein.

Did I mention how good these smell while roasting?! I became intrigued as soon as I put the almonds into the oven for the first round of roasting (pre-maple cinnamon).

Because… it smelled kind of like popcorn?

And then my interest really peaked once I mixed the almonds with the maple syrup and cinnamon and put them back in the oven to roast some more… the house just smelled like this wonderful toasted pie crust!

It really filled my whole apartment, including the hallways leading to it. I imagine my neighbors were happy about that. 🙂

If the smell wasn’t wonderful enough, these Cinnamon & Maple Roasted Almonds taste fabulous!

Roasting almonds gives them such a change in flavor…a bit more nutty, yet lighter all at the same time?

The flavor is really quite different!

It is definitely worth trying if you haven’t already.

Especially because it is so easy to do! Pop them in the oven for up to 15 minutes… yup, it’s that easy!

I only added 1 Tbs of maple syrup in this recipe which serves 4. To me, this was enough to add a lightly sweetened touch to the recipe, but if you really want more maple flavor and to really caramelize the almonds, you could add more.

While roasting, the maple syrup creates an almost crystallized coating on top of the almonds, which traps the cinnamon flavor in… yum yum yum!

Your sweet tooth craving will definitely be satisfied!

And if you eat these warm, it’s game over.
