Maple Cinnamon Almonds


Funny story: this recipe for maple cinnamon almonds is probably the easiest recipe I’ve ever made, yet I still managed to mess it up more times than I care to admit. Note to self: focus is key when baking! I didn’t have quite enough almonds, I forgot to add the salt to the mix (so I sprinkled some on halfway through the baking process), and accidentally added the maple syrup to the sugar mixture instead of the egg. How awkward. The best part? Despite all my could-have-been-major hiccups and the fact that they aren’t as pretty as I would have liked, they still tasted beyond. Like everyone who goes in for a sample looses complete control over themselves and forces me to take them away type of beyond. All this to say that you need to make them. They’re clearly foolproof! And your whole home will smell like warm cinnamon, which should be a law come autumn.

    • Jacquelyn says:

      haha well thank you! I thought they’d turn out all glossy and lovely but I think that my almond to coating mixture was a little off, hence the heavy coating (but that might be why they’re extra delicious)

  17. Laura says:

    This is one of my favorite street snacks in NYC so I’m loving how easy it will be to make at home! Will have to try this as a dessert snack to serve at Thanksgiving – my family always has assorted nuts and this would be a tasty addition.

    One trick I might mention for this recipe: spray your measuring cup with non-stick spray before measuring out the syrup, that way it doesn’t get all stuck in the measuring cup. Saw it on Paula Deen’s show a while ago and while I’ve never tried it myself (haven’t cooked with syrup in a while), it did seem to work for her!

    • Jacquelyn says:

      non-stick spray kind of scares me for some reason, but this totally makes sense! I just used a mini spatula to get all the maple syrupy goodness out, but it was definitely a bit messy :)

  18. Melissa says:

    Did you use pure maple syrup or maple pancake syrup?
