  • 2 cups Raw almonds
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar or Cinnamon brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon if you use just the brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Pour water, Sweetener, vanilla and salt into a heavy bottom sauce pan. Stir on medium heat till well combined.
  • Add the nuts into the liquid and start stirring.
  • Stir continuously for 3 minutes until you see the liquid caramelizing ( it thickens )
  • Turn off the heat ( there will still be some liquid. That liquid will eventually become the caramelization on the nuts)
  • Transfer caramelized nuts onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet ( be very careful it's very hot and you can get burned)
  • Allow to cool then break caramelized nuts into smaller chunks
  • Store in an air tight container for up to 2 months
