20 Ways To: Eat an Almond #1

Candied! Candied nuts are delicious and you can rationalize the sweetness by the fact that they’re chock full of protein and other goodness. Plus, they last a little while (if you don’t eat them in one sitting) and they’re highly portable for snacks on the go.

To make two cups:

PREP 5 mins   COOK 15 mins    READY IN 35 mins


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups whole almonds


Combine the water, sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil then add the almonds.

Cook and stir the mixture until the liquid evaporates and leaves the almonds with a syrup-like coating.

Pour the almonds onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper and separate with forks.

Cool for 15 minutes.
