Food and beverages that we eat in between our regular meal are termed as snaking. Honey glazed almonds are also a great snacking option. No matter what time of a day you feel like eating snacks, these honey glazed almonds are a perfect companion of all times.

Typically snacking is not looked at as a good habit. It is because snacks are mostly referred to high calories and fatty foods e.g. cookies, cakes, and wafers. Honey glazed almonds, on the contrary, is a healthy snacking option that even your dietician will like you to eat.

Healthy snacking vs unhealthy snacking

Whether snacking leads to weight gain or weight loss is no proven theory behind that. Few claim snacking increase metabolism, but again there is no scientific research that proves the same. Healthline released a beautiful, evidence-based article and wrote in detail about healthy and unhealthy snacking.

Concluding many research’s together, the fine line is to choose a healthy snacking option. You may snack to prevent hunger or maybe to eat smaller portions throughout the day. The reason could be different, but the choice should be healthy.

In a healthy eating habit, one of the suggested steps is to replace unhealthy snacks with healthy snacks. Honey glazed almonds and baked sweet potatoes are a good replacement.

Almond and Honey benefits

Almonds are a great source of vitamin E. Along with vitamin E, Almonds are also a source of vitamin B2, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, biotin, and copper. Interestingly, more than 60% of the fat that almonds contain are monounsaturated fat that helps in lowering cholesterol.

On the other side, honey prevents cancer and heart diseases. I always depend on honey and turmeric when it comes to treating cough and throat irritation. Honey also helps in regulating blood sugar and its probiotic nature increase good bacteria in the body.

When combined together, almond and honey benefit the entire body system.

Heating effects on Honey

Pure honey can stay unspoiled for thousands of years. A spoon of honey with Luke warm water helps in cutting down the fact, however, boiling or heating honey directly is never a good idea. Temperature more than 37 Degree Celsius (98.6F) has detrimental effects on the nutritional values of honey.

Healthy Roasted Almonds recipe with Glazed Honey

Honey glazed almonds with a hint of salt is my favorite tea time partner. This recipe is a tried and tested recipe that satisfies the need of both, sweet and salty, snacking. Therefore, I consider this as the best honey roasted almonds recipe.

For this recipe, all we need is Almonds, Honey, Sugar, and salt. It is such an easy recipe that you can prepare in no time.

Honey Glazed Almonds Ingredients

First of all, keep your oven for preheating at 200 degree Celsius for 10 minutes. I always recommend preheating the oven prior to baking. Preheating helps in even baking.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and spread almonds on it. Bake these almonds in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Roasted Almonds

Meanwhile, in a non-stick pan take sugar, honey, and salt. Heat it on low to medium flame.

Sugar Salt and honey

I like the granules of sugar on my roasted almonds, hence I heated the solution only for 2-3 minutes. This saves the honey to get overheated and spoil. If you want to dissolve the sugar completely, then first heat sugar and once it is caramelized, add honey.

Honey Syrup

While baking, place the tray on a middle rack and use the only bottom coil. Once roasted, take out the almonds from the oven.

Almonds Coated with Honey Syrup

Coat roasted almonds with prepared sugar honey syrup and spread on a butter paper. Let them cool completely.
