I have an easy and oh so good recipe for Cinnamon Roasted Almonds that’s healthy too! I’ve tweaked this recipe after making these almonds several times, adjusting the seasoning. These cinnamon almonds are sugar free, but you wouldn’t know it to taste them!
Almonds make a perfect snack since they also provide some nutrition. A handful of almonds gives you 6 grams of protein as well as providing fiber, calcium, potassium and heart-healthy fats that may help lower total cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease.
I also made a fun discovery: A lid of a regular mouth Ball jar holds one serving of almonds (1/4 cup). . . a convenient way to measure your serving, so you don’t mindlessly eat these almonds like popcorn. (easy to do, trust me ;)
Sugar Free Cinnamon Roasted Almonds
Makes 3 cups

*Truvia is a sugar substitute zero-calorie natural sweetener comprised of erythritol, natural flavors and stevia leaf extract.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine Truvia, cinnamon, and salt, stirring together. Add almonds to medium bowl. In small bowl whisk together egg white and vanilla until frothy; pour over almonds and add cinnamon mixture, stirring well to coat almonds.

Not only do these almonds taste great, the kitchen smells wonderful while they’re roasting too!
I usually have a serving of cinnamon almonds with my morning coffee, thanks to these two who get me up at 5 am. . .
These almonds are also a great pick-me-up and satisfy your sweet tooth in the afternoon with a cup of tea or would make a great gift to share, especially in a Ball® Sharing Jar.
M stands for Mary but also for ‘Mmm Mmm Good’ ;)
