  • 4 cups whole almonds
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 250°F. Butter the bottom and sides of a 15x10x1.5-inch jelly roll pan.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl using an electric mixer, beat together the egg white and vanilla extract until the egg white has expanded and looks creamy and light beige in color.
  • Add the almonds to the mixing bowl. Coat the almonds with the beaten egg white stirring until evenly coated.
  • Place the granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large plastic storage bag. Seal the bag and shake to combine.
  • Drop the egg white coated almonds into the sugar mixture.
  • Seal the bag and shake until the almonds are coated on all sides.
  • Spread in a single layer on the prepared jelly roll pan then bake for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes.
  • Spread on wax paper and cool completely.
  • Store tightly covered at room temperature.


Blanched almonds are unsalted and readily available at most grocery stores and big box stores like Walmart, Sams and Costco.
