Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw almonds, unsalted
  • 1/8 cup raw honey
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 cup sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the almonds on the baking sheet in a single layer and roast in the oven for 10 minutes, until the almonds begin to smell toasty. Remove right away to ensure they do not burn.

  2. While the almonds are roasting in the oven, heat a small saucepan over low heat and add the honey, brown sugar and salt. Stir constantly for about 1 minute. Pour the honey mixture over the almonds while the almonds are still on the baking sheet. Use a spoon to stir the almonds around so they are coated on all sides.

  3. You can coat with the sesame seeds in one of two ways. Either pour the seeds over the almonds directly on the baking sheet and stir the almonds around to coat. Or, put the sesame seeds in a bowl and in small batches pour the almonds in the bowl and toss around to coat.
  4. When the almonds are coated with the seeds, return them to the oven to roast for another 7 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the almonds to cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.
