Cinnamon-Maple Candied Almonds

Cinnamon-Maple Candied Almonds
Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:


Created by Peggy Kotsopoulos for California Almonds to seize the afternoon. #CarpePM with almonds!



2 teaspoons (10 mL) ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon (1 mL) cayenne pepper

1/2 cup (125 mL) whole natural almonds

2 tablespoons (30 mL) maple syrup



Mix cinnamon and cayenne in a small ramekin and set aside.

Turn stovetop to medium heat. In a non-stick pan, gently toast almonds until they start to pop, roughly 4 minutes, stirring consistently with a wooden spoon to avoid burning.

Add maple syrup (it will start to sear), immediately add the cinnamon-cayenne mixture, continuing to stir consistently, until well combined and the almonds are coated, roughly 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and transfer almonds to a cooling dish. Let cool completely.
