How to make these Maple Roasted Salted Almonds
Start by preheating your oven to 165°C / 330°F so it’s ready to go. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
Now on to the almonds – add the dry almonds to a bowl, then simply add the olive oil, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. Mix well to combine until the almonds are thoroughly coated, then place them on the prepared baking tray in a single layer.
Roast the almonds for about 12 minutes, or until they start to caramelize. Watch them closely so they do not burn.
Once roasted, remove them from the oven and let them cool down completely. The almonds will firm up and get crunchier as they cool.
Once the almonds are cooled, prepare the topping: to a large bowl, add the sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Add in the roasted almonds and toss to combine.
