Beware, Honey Roasted Almonds are highly addictive! But they also make great gifts during the holidays! We’ve been roasting peanuts and almonds since I can remember. My mom often bought raw nuts and roasted them with a touch of salt. Adding a bit of honey and a drizzle of olive oil can elevate these nuts even more. I highly recommend trying this at home. It’s simple and flavorful, and you get to customize the taste to your liking.

Ingredients For Honey Roasted Almonds

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • kosher salt, to taste (optional)

How To Make Roasted Almonds

  1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cook: Combine the olive oil, honey and water in a skillet, heat it up to thin out the liquid, and mix in the almonds.
  3. Roast: Transfer the almonds to the sheet pan and spread them out in a single layer. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Serve: Let the almonds cool for 5 minutes and serve.

Don’t forget the salt – it makes a huge difference. Unless you don’t want that salty-sweet thing. Then I understand. While you’re at it, put some aside for gifting. Trust me, food gifts are always welcome.


The almonds will last 5 to 7 days at room temperature.
