1 cup granulated sweetener of choice
1/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cinnamon divided
3 cups raw almonds
How to prepare:
On medium heat, heat a large pan When hot, add 3/4 of your granulated sweetener of choice, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, water, and vanilla extract, and mix until fully combined.
Allow to heat up, stirring occasionally.
When the mixture has completely dissolved, add your almonds. Mix your almonds into the sweet mixture, ensuring each almond is evenly coated. Continue to stir until the sweetener begins to crystallize on each almond. Remove from the heat.
Allow almonds to sit for 2-3 minutes, before using a spatula to break apart the almonds, before they crystallize together.
Once cooled, toss the almonds in the remaining half cup of sweetener and tablespoon of cinnamon, before transferring to an airtight container.
