Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fat and fiber, which protects you from heart disease.  They are loaded with protein, magnesium, calcium, potassium, copper, zinc, and phytochemicals.  They can help you feel full and prevent you from overeating later on in the day. 

Serves: 1 ounce


1 egg white 

1 tsp cold water

4 cups whole almonds

½ cup sugar

¼ tsp salt

½ tsp ground cinnamon



  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.  Lightly grease a 10 x 15 inch jellyroll pan or cookie sheet.
  2. Lightly beat the egg white; add water, and beat until frothy but not stiff.  Add the nuts, and stir until well coated.
  3. Mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts.  Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, stirring occasionally until golden.  Allow to cool, then store in airtight containers.
