    Gasp! So much sugar!
    If you take the nuts and dip into egg white mixed with stevia, cinnamon (and a pinch of cayenne), spread onto a cookie sheet and dry in the oven, you will have a much healthier snack. See my recipe:

    Skip the butter altogether - it's not necessary!! The egg white holds the seasonings on. There are many recipes for roasted, flavored almonds on the internet that are much healthier than this one. - 1/4/13

    It's worth a try, but only after using a butter substitute and a splenda product in place of the sugar. It's OK that the Almond Board submitted this. We know how to make it healthier. - 1/4/13

    I do agree, why eat that much sugar and fat when Nature provided the real deal. It makes no sense when people are supposed to be eating healthier. Besides which, leave off the sugar and butter and that will help the budget. Just toast a few at a time and keep the other in the freezer. - 1/4/13

    I'd use half cup of splenda instead and maybe coconut oil instead of butter. or just sprinkle some cinammon and splenda over a handful of nuts and munch away. A 1/3c butter isn't extravagant, but for people trying to lose weight, this is kind of a tease. I'll use this as a reward dessert. - 1/4/13

    I wonder how many calories and carbohydrates there would be in this recipe if we use Splenda instead of sugar? Almonds and cinnamon are healthy foods. With that change this recipe wouldn't be prohibitive for those of us who have diabetes. - 1/4/13

    Although a bit high in calories - you're talking about 25 almonds per serving. Considering the number - you could spread it out - not eat all at once. Sounds kinda interesting to me. - 1/4/13

    Way too much sugar and fat for a Diabetic! Not to say a 300 calorie snack is ridiculous! I tried just plain roasting and also roasting after shaking nuts sprayed with just a small amt. of olive oil spray in a bag with cinnamon and splenda and spreading them on a parchment lined baking sheet. - 1/12/13

    Way bad, why can't you just spray the with olive oil and sprinkle with the cinnamon? I think I will pass this one up. A snack is around 25-100 calories, a meal is 300-400, so no thank you. - 1/6/13

    'They say' both cinnamon and almonds are good for diabetics - fair enough. Ditch the butter, salt, and most (or all) of the sugar, and you have a good snack. FIT_ARTIST has a dandy, BTW! - 1/6/13

    This version just isn't worth the fat and calories! Plain nuts or roasted with a bit of stevia and cinnamon is just fine. - 1/4/13

  • If this doesn't appeal to you, don't make it. I did for Super Bowl and loved it! I ate half a serving. I could have eaten it all, but I didn't. It IS one to make rarely and to pre-portion. But I'm glad I have it for special occasions! - 2/23/13

    all I have to see is 300 calories for a few nuts and I'm not even tempted to make these. I love those german nuts sold at craft fairs etc but I try to steer away from those even though the smell is so enticing...... - 1/4/13
