Paleo Candied Almonds: 5-minute stovetop EASY candied almonds recipe! Learn how to make the BEST vegan candied almonds— crunchy & sweet, healthy & gluten free!




  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients (almonds, maple syrup, almond extract and salt, if using) to a large or medium nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Using a heatproof silicone spatula, stir until well mixed and almonds are fully coated.
  3. Stir occasionally, making sure almonds roast evenly on every side. Frequently scrape down the skillet to ensure the maple cooks onto the almonds.
  4. When the maple syrup is nearly gone (about 5-9 minutes), begin to stir frequently. Stir until almonds start sticking together in clumps—being careful not to burn.
  5. Pour almonds onto the prepared baking sheet, placed on a cooling rack or towel. Spread into an even layer, with empty pockets at regular intervals to let air through. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Optionally, sprinkle with sea salt. Storing instructions below. Enjoy!
