Sweet Glazed Almonds

Ever wonder what to eat at Christmas without diving into that box of sugar-laden chocolates? Try these on for size. The cinnamon offers a metabolism boost and the rice malt syrup won’t spike your blood sugar – so you might just be able to stop at one handful!





  • 1 cup raw almonds (activated, if possible)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 1 tsp himalayan sea salt


  1. Melt together the oil and rice malt syrup.
  2. Mix in the cinnamon and salt, then add nuts and stir until coated.
  3. Spread evenly on a baking tray and toast for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally if necessary.
  4. Remove and allow to cool.
