Not only do these roasted almonds taste great, but they’re also simple to bake in the oven. They make your home smell AMAZING! The cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar substitute combo is perfect! You can use your favorite keto approved sweetener (reference our Best Keto Sweeteners & Conversion Guide that’s super helpful). I used 1/2 cup of Swerve granular, and loved how they turned out – with yummy taste and texture!
No one will even know these delicious spiced almonds are sugar-free!
16 oz. raw almonds
1 large egg white
1/2 cup sugar alternative ( I used Swerve granular)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees, and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk egg until frothy and stir in the almonds to coat.
In a small bowl, stir together sugar substitute, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Pour that mixture over the almonds, and stir until fully coated.
Pour almonds onto a baking sheet and spread in even layer.
Bake for about 20 minutes, stop in the middle of baking time to turn over almonds for even baking. Remove from oven and let cool. Store leftovers in an airtight container.

Crunchy Candied Almonds!
Once your almonds cool for a bit out of the oven, they become super crunchy. I love the cinnamon sugar taste. I think this is such a genius way to enjoy a traditional holiday treat or snack while sticking to a keto lifestyle! Such a fun recipe! You can also use other nuts such as pecans or walnuts if preferred.
