My mom is a big fan of these Cinnamon Candied Nuts. We used to buy these Cinnamon Candied Nuts from our local grocery store. My mom prefers her jar of peanuts full so whenever we go to the grocery, these nuts are always on the list. I cannot believe how easy these Cinnamon Candied Nuts are made! The first time I tried them, I know it’ll be easy peasy, and I was not wrong! From then on, I never let my mom buy these nuts from the store!

These cinnamon sugar-coated almonds are an excellent budget-friendly gift idea, especially since that season of giving is just around the corner. I love to make personalized gifts, and I promise these Cinnamon Candied Nuts are one of the best gift options. Simply make a big batch, pack them in jars, and thread a personalized letter/note.

These Cinnamon Candied Nuts are super irresistible! Candied nuts have been one of my (and my mom’s) favorite snacks. Nuts are heart-healthy, (considered) brain food, and (my mom’s favorite) they keep the bad cholesterol away! Nuts are amazing as is, but when roasted in cinnamon sugar, they transform into magnetic goodness! These Cinnamon Candied Nuts are insanely easy to make with short prep time and cook time. After thirty minutes of baking, you’ll have these tasty cinnamon-sugar-coated nuts ready


1 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 c. water

2 c. almonds

sea salt, optional

1 c. sugar

How to make Cinnamon Candied Nuts

Step 1: Place the water, sugar, and cinnamon in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir well and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the almonds once the mixture is boiling. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the mixture has a syrupy consistency.

Step 2: On a parchment-lined baking sheet, pour the nuts and evenly spread. You sprinkle some sea salt on top if desired.

Step 3: Allow the nuts to harden before serving. Enjoy!
