Maple Coconut Roasted Almonds

DF GF V VG

These maple coconut roasted almonds with maple syrup and coconut flakes are so easy to whip up and have a delicious sweet flavor.

These maple roasted almonds one of my favorite portable snacks. Most of the time I buy whole raw almonds for snacking plain or adding to homemade trail mixes, but other times I crave something with more robust flavor and I get roasted almonds.

Recently I saw that my local health food store had coconut roasted almonds and I knew I needed them in my life. Instead of buying them, I decided to make my own — that way I would have a recipe to share with you all. Always thinking about you guys. 🙂

A blue mason jar filled to the top with maple coconut roasted almonds. The lid is laying next to the jar with additional almonds in it and a few scattered in front of it.

These babies are good! They’re sweet but not too sweet and the toasted coconut pairs perfectly with the maple syrup and nuttiness of the almonds. I’ve been eating at least a handful a day. I can’t get enough of them.

Fun nutritional facts about almonds: they provide a dose of healthy fat, protein and fiber and are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant.

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 375°.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together almonds, maple syrup, shredded coconut, vanilla extract and sea salt. Toss until almonds are well coated.

Notes

If you’ve ever roasted your nuts and seeds at home, you’ll know the process is super simple and takes only minutes. Just remember, you do have to keep an eye on them, as they can burn rather quickly.

      Oh my god, these are AMAZING! I added some pepita seeds as well and the combination of flavours and textures are out of this world.

      Has anyone tried a sugar free version yet? Would sugar free pancake syrup work? Thanks

      I make these often as they are a tasty and healthy snack. The recipe is also really good with pecans.

      Wow! These look amazing…love the flavor profile! My only concern would be to eat more than one serving…it’s easy to overindulge on nuts and think you’re being healthy!

        Thanks Nina. Yeah, it’s definitely easy to over do it with nuts but if you measure out the correct portion (and stick with it) they’re a great snack option.
