Honey-Roasted Almonds

It is amazing what you pay in the market for these little morsels. So here is a recipe that will give you more “bang for the buck”. This recipe makes about 2 cups.


  • 2 cups whole almonds
  • ¼ sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil


  • Baking pan
  • Medium sized bowl
  • Small bowl
  • Medium saucepan
  • Wax paper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place almonds on ungreased baking pan in a single layer and place in oven.
  3. Stir occasionally until nuts turn a light brown in the inside (10-11 minutes depending on oven. Test by breaking almond open to look for color). Be careful not to burn, because the nuts will continue to cook once removed from oven.
  4. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
  5. Mix sugar and salt in small bowl and set aside.
  6. In saucepan add, honey, water, and oil and stir. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  7. Add almonds to pan and continue to cook until liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  8. Immediately transfer to medium sized bowl and sprinkle with sugar mixture and stir until the nuts are evenly coated.
  9. Spread nuts out onto waxed paper and let cool.
  10. When cool store at room temperature in tightly covered container for up to two weeks.
