I’ve been super into roasted almonds lately. I love the way they make the house smell and I love having crunchy healthy snacks around the house.

You can never really have too many roasted almonds this time of year, so I thought it was time to share a pumpkin spiced roasted almond recipe. These Cinnamon Pumpkin Roasted Almonds are addicting! Good thing they are a delicious and healthy Paleo, Gluten-free, Grain-free snack.

I had the idea to add pumpkin puree to roasted almonds for a while now. I did some research and noticed that there were only pumpkin spice flavored roasted almond recipes on the net.

I didn’t find any with any actual pumpkin puree in them. ( I’m sure some exist but I didn’t spot any in my hunt)

I wasn’t sure if this was because using pumpkin puree didn’t work, but I wanted to test it out for myself.

And I’m glad I did because these Cinnamon Pumpkin Roasted Almonds are soooo good! I am hooked!

The flavors are not overwhelming here, there is a slight pumpkin flavor, which adds an almost earthy element to these roasted almonds.

They aren’t overly sweet either, which is nice. I’ve been trying to cut back on my sweets consumption, especially this time of year, and I found the amount of maple syrup here to add the slightest bit of sweetness.

The cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves here add a bit of pumpkin spice to these almonds. Basically the combination of the maple syrup, pumpkin, and spices work really well together, resulting in a lightly pumpkin spiced roasted almond.

The roasted almonds are still the main stars of this recipe, in case you were wondering how the flavor overall tastes.

To me, there is a pleasant pumpkin and pumpkin spice seasoning, but it isn’t overpowering.

These Cinnamon Pumpkin Roasted Almonds would be a great snack to bring to a party or would make a great gift. I can already imagine putting some in a mason jar, tying it up with a Fall ribbon and giving it as a gift. How cute?!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet in parchment paper.
  • Evenly spread out 2 cups of almonds onto the cookie sheet and bake them for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the almonds from the oven, but keep the oven on. Pour the almonds into a larger bowl. Keep the parchment paper on the cookie sheet.
  • In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, until well mixed. Pour the mixture on top of the almonds and mix until all of the almonds are coated in the pumpkin mixture.
  • Evenly spread out the almonds onto the lined cookie sheet again, make sure that they aren't overcrowded. Bake for 10 minutes, then mix the almonds around on the cookie sheet. Bake for 5 more minutes, mix again. Remove the almonds from the oven and let them cool on the pan for 5 minutes, this lets everything harden a bit more.
