Looking for a tasty snack that you can make yourself? This recipe for slow cooker cinnamon almonds should do the trick. These delicious cinnamon almonds are made in a slow cooker and have a crunchy coating made from brown sugar, cinnamon and regular sugar. The egg white allows the mixture to coat the almonds well. This shows that crock pot recipes are not all about main courses!
I love using nuts to make a slightly sweet snack that is still good for you. See my maple cinnamon toasted pecans for another alternative.
Making these Slow Cooker Cinnamon Almonds
To make the treat, you will need the following ingredients;
- 3/4 C. Sugar
- 3/4 C. Brown Sugar
- 3 Tbsp. Cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp. Salt
- 1 Egg White
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3 Cups whole raw Almonds
- 1/4 C. Water
- Pam cooking spray
In a bowl, mix together the sugars, cinnamon, and salt.
In a separate bowl mix the egg white and vanilla with a whisk until it is light and frothy.
Add the almonds to the mixture and coat thoroughly. This will help the mixture stick to the almonds during the cooking process.
Stir the almonds into the sugar mixture.
Prepare the slow cooker by spraying it with Pam cooking spray. Add the cinnamon almond mixture to the crock pot and turn it to a low setting. Stir until the cinnamon sugar mixture is coated well on the almonds.
Cook on low for about 3-4 hours. Be sure to stir every 20 minutes so the coating will stick well to the almonds and not get too sticky.
In the last hour, add 1/4 cup water and stir well. This will give the almonds a crunchy coating and will help the mixture to harden.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the almonds onto the sheet to cool. The almonds should be very sticky so be sure to separate them well and let them cool!
These are delicious and worth the time involved in tending them. Your party guests will love the taste and texture of these sweet nutritious treats.
