Looking for a homemade snack, salad topping or even a treat to give as a gift? These Vanilla Cinnamon Candied Almonds are perfect of that!
They're so crunchy and are great for when you're craving a protein-packed snack or need a topping that's a bit on the sweeter side but not overpowering.
Another great thing about this recipe is that it only requires 6 ingredients! Most of those ingredients are things that you most likely already have in your pantry and spice cabinet. You'll only need the following:
While there are many ways of candying nuts, the way we believe works the best is by coating them in a flavored mixture of whipped egg whites that you toss the nuts in and roast, low and slow, until they are fully dehydrated.
The beauty of this technique is that you can really add any flavors you want to the coating and because the egg whites are what's used to bind everything, you don’t actually have to use much sugar (or any) at all.

Cheers and eat well!
