With a minimum of flavouring, roasted almonds provide a great snack on the road. Pass the doughnuts and discreetly bring out a tiny container of roasted almonds when you stop at Starbucks or at Tim Hortons. I am not exactly sure how many calories these are; I would estimate 15 roasted almonds cannot be more than a hundred calories. If you want to loose weight eat every four hours. You mustn’t get hungry or the body will shut down and conserve every blessed thing you put into it. And keep drinking water. Carry the water and make sure if you have to buy a bottle it contains no sodium!
2 cups [250g] whole raw almonds
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp water
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
light sprinkling of salt
• Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil.
• Spread the almonds in a single layer in the pan and place in a cold oven.
• Bake at 350F for 12 minutes.
• Turn off the oven.
• In a medium sized bowl combine the honey, water and olive oil.
• Take the almonds out of the oven and pour into the bowl.
• Stir to coat the almonds.
• Pour the whole thing back into the foil lined baking pan and return pan to the still warm oven.
• Let the almonds dry in the oven. Do not turn on the heat.
• After an hour remove pan from the oven and let the almonds cool down.
• Store the glazed almonds in air-tight metal cookie box.
• Always keep a small container of roasted almonds in your purse.


  1. If I put a container of these almonds in my purse they would all be gone by the end of the day. :) I love almonds.

  2. Maria I hear ya. So for authencity's sake I should take a photo with just 15 almonds. That is what I carry in my bag now. OK the next bright day. We have been overcast for two days now.

  3. It's an excellent idea, Zsuzsa! Although I would add some chili and maybe spices to it ;-)

  4. I looked it up, an almond is 7 calories! We love them plain roasted, really a perfect snack.

  5. Perfect timing! I just bought a 2 pound bag of almonds and was sitting here looking at it saying "What am I going to do with all those almonds?" :) I love this sweet almond recipe! You read my mind clear across an ocean!

  6. Enjoy Peach Lady. Next time I will just roast them, my palate is slowly adjusting to the sugarless life. I never found fruit all that exciting, except with sugar over a cheesecake, haha, but now I look forward to eating some grapes or strawberries on their own.
