Candied Almonds – Gluten Free, Vegan, & Refined Sugar Free

  • Author: Morgan | Just What We Eat
  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 20
  • Total Time: 25


  • 3 cups almonds
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Roast almonds in the oven on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for 8 minutes.
  3. While the almonds are roasting, in a medium sized pot, heat coconut sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and water over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil whisking frequently.
  4. Add the almonds to the sugar mixture and stir.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and stir until the sugar mixture evaporates and leaves a syrup like coating on the almonds (about 5-8 minutes).
  6. Continue to stir the almonds in the sugar mixture until the sugar starts to crystallize on the almonds and is no longer sticky (about 5-10 minutes).
  7. Pour the almonds back onto the parchment lined cookie sheet and allow to cool completely before serving.
