cocoa roasted almonds

2 cups raw almonds 

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 Tbsp cane sugar 

2 tsp flake salt (or 1 tsp table salt) 

3 Tbsp cocoa powder 

  • Place almonds in a medium bowl. Drizzle maple syrup over the almonds and stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle the cane sugar and salt over the almonds and stir until evenly coated. 
  • Spread the almonds evenly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, until the almonds are roasty and the sugar is just caramelized. 
  • Right when you remove the almonds from the oven, put them into a clean bowl and sprinkle the cocoa powder over them. Cover the bowl with a plate and shake to coat the almonds with the cocoa powder. 
  • If any almonds aren't completely covered with the cocoa powder, give them a quick stir. 
  • Spread the almonds over a clean sheet of parchment or on a clean baking sheet to cool. 
  • Once cooled completely, store in an airtight container. 
  • Enjoy!
