I was really looking forward to a recipe I found for cinnamon almonds but after making it and trying it I was disappointed. They were still raw in the inside and burnt on the outside. So I thought what if I try roasting them first and then add the spices and sugar later. TOTALLY WORKED!!! These are so delicious! They are sweet spicy and crunchy…. so yummy. I did a few other things to make them unrefined (sugar) and eggs free with no taste lost and only gained! I think this recipe would be a great gift. I love this mason jar look. These will sure be what I’m giving out this holiday season. Kids do agree. 🙂

4 tbsp of raw sugar ( 1-2 tbsp more if you like sweet sweet)
1.Spread out the raw almonds on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 325.
2.Take out of the oven and let cool for 15 minutes.

4. Add the almonds and raw sugar and stir again.
5.Line the baking dish with parchment paper and bake for 15- 20 minutes at 325. The syrup will be bubbly when you take them out of the oven. Let cool for a few minutes and then stir to prevent from clumping.
