  • 2 cups raw, unsalted almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa/cacao powder
  • 2 Tablespoons honey/agave syrup
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon
  • ⅛ – ¼ teaspoon pink Himalayan/sea salt

Optional ingredients: 

  • ⅛ – ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon instant coffee

Additional Add-ins: 

Dried cranberries, raisins, dried cherries, coconut chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together cocoa/cacao, cinnamon, and salt (and cayenne and coffee, if using) and set aside.
  2. Spread almonds in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast in preheated oven for about 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven to stir almonds, return pan to oven and roast for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. While the almonds are roasting, heat the honey and vanilla over the stove on low heat for a few minutes to create a thinner consistency.
  4. Transfer warm almonds from the baking sheet into a large glass bowl. Add melted honey and vanilla and toss to coat evenly. Add cocoa mixture, stirring again to coat almonds evenly.
  5. Arrange coated almonds back onto the baking sheet in a single layer to allow to cool completely.
  6. Store cooled almonds in an air-tight container and enjoy!

Ingredient Highlights

Almonds are a fantastic source of antioxidants that protect against oxidative stress which can contribute to inflammation, aging, and diseases like cancer. 

Ceylon Cinnamon is also known as Cinnamomum verum or true cinnamon. It has a lighter, sweeter flavor and more health benefits than the more common Cassia cinnamon found in most grocery stores. 

Cacao/cocoa powder – the closer chocolate is to its original raw state, the more nutrients it retains and the better it is for you. When possible, use raw cacao powder (with two “A”s) instead of cocoa powder in your baking.  

Raw honey is a good source of many vitamins and is rich in antioxidants. Its antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties can help improve overall immune function.

Vanilla was once used in Europe as an aphrodisiac and in the production of certain medicines such as nerve stimulants.
