  • 2 cups raw unsalted almonds
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup water


  • In a large skillet over medium heat add your water, coconut sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir to incorporate together well.
  • Add your almonds and stir well.
  • Bring mixture to a simmer. Stir continuously you will see the mixture turn from liquid to syrup to coating on the almonds. This process takes about 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the liquid is gone and the almonds are coated spread out on a lined baking sheet and separate the almonds.
  • Let cool for 15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!


  • Make sure to stir continuously so they do not stick to the pan and the coating sticks to the almonds.
