Nutty Christmas :)

We are officially in full blown Christmas mode. The decorations are up, and we're already starting to knock out a lot of our Christmas gifts. I don't know about you, but sometimes those random gifts we need to get are the hardest. For teachers, coworkers, clients, etc., you want to give them something nice, but also don't want to break the bank! This year we've got you covered with the perfect gift... It's super easy, inexpensive, and an awesome gift for almost anyone!

These delicious cinnamon sugar almonds are sure to please, and can be made ahead of time for gifting. Below is the recipe and instructions on how to make them :)

First you put your almonds in a bowl, and coat them with your beaten egg white

Next, coat the almonds with your cinnamon sugar, vanilla, and salt mixture.

Then spread your almonds out on a pan and bake.

…and get ready for your house to smell amazing. 

These almonds are delicious, and the cutest gift when packaged in a mason jar with a cute label and ribbon. Find the free printables for these darling labels HERE.

We promise these will be a hit ;) Enjoy!

We made these at Paige's house, and also wanted to share some of her favorite Christmas decorations…just because there's nothing we love more than decking out our homes for Christmas!

  1. These look amazing ladies! Will definitely be giving it a try (as well as some roasted-chickpea versions for the nut-free people in my life)

    happy holidays!

    1. Thanks Laura! And great idea! Thanks for reading :)

  2. Very cute and nice to have a homemade treat to give that is not a sugar overload!

    1. True, although it's definitely still possible to get a sugar overload from these...they are addicting! ;)

  3. Gosh these look good. I wish I could eat them, I love almonds but have been having jaw problems. I wonder if they could be turned into a nut butter?

    1. Thank you! We've never tried that but it sounds yummy! Be sure to know how it turns out if you try it!
