I once heard someone say, “The way to a man’s heart is thru his stomach.” I believe that there is some truth to that statement.
Food is love.
Unfortunately for my husband, I am not a cook. I grew up on microwave dinners and restaurants. The knowledge and gift of being able to whip up a culinary masterpiece from scratch was not passed along to me.
But that doesn’t stop me from trying.
If food is love, then I want to cook for my husband as much as possible.
These Cinnamon Sugar Almonds are a sure ticket to my husband’s heart. They are the perfect combination of nutty crunchy sweetness.
Cinnamon Sugar Almonds
- 1 egg white
- 1 Tbsp water
- 3 Cups Almonds (raw)
- ¼ Cup brown sugar
- ½ Cup granulated sugar
- 3 tsp. Cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl combine the egg white and water. Whisk until it gets a little bit frothy.
In a separate small bowl mix together the sugars and the cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the almonds and the egg white mixture. Stir until almonds are well covered in the egg white. Next, pour in your sugar mixture and combine well to ensure that all almonds are coated.
Spread almonds in an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and give them a stir. Then, bake another 10 – 15 minutes.
I love to eat the almonds when they are still warm from the oven.
Feel free to experiment with combinations of other nuts that you love. Almonds just happen to be my favorite.
You won’t believe how wonderful your house will smell while these are baking.
These almonds are not only a great treat for your husband, but they would also make wonderful gifts for teachers, neighbors, or coworkers.
I hope you enjoy!
