Nuts are a great source of heart-healthy fat, fiber, and protein. Eating a serving (about 1/4 cup) of nuts everyday, especially if you’re eating them in place of an animal-based food like meat or cheese, is a habit we could all stand to practice. Plus, nuts happen to be delicious!
Coconut Honey Roasted Almonds are my latest nut obsession. Here’s how to make them.
Coconut Honey Roasted Almonds
Serves: 12 servings
- 3 cups raw almonds
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup shredded coconut
- 1 tsp oil
- ¼ tsp salt
- Place almonds in a mixing bowl. Add honey, oil, and salt and mix until all the nuts are well-coated.
- Spread out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and stir in coconut shreds.
- Let cool, then store in an air-tight container.
Serving size: ¼ cup
Note: as with all nuts, be sure to monitor your portion size. The calories add up quick! Aim for 1/4 cup, or about 20 almonds so you don’t overdo it on the calories.

This looks delicious! Sorry if this is a dumb question, I am not a cook! What kind of oil should I use?

Canola, grapeseed, or melted coconut oil would be best because they are flavorless. Very valid question, thanks for asking!

I am curious what kind of honey you used.
I like to support the local apiaries so I seek out local honey. I happened to have wildflower honey which was nice, I also added coconut oil but I used it in it’s solid form at room temp. I used kosher salt too. I decided to mix in the coconut into the mix as opposed to after cooking, this toasted the coconut which I liked.
Next time I will experiment with maple syrup or buckwheat honey to see now that works.

I use local honey too, for the same reasons. I think any (real) honey would taste good. Great idea toasting the coconut.

I bought some coconut almonds at a craft fair and they were delicious. They had a coating on them. I think it was powdered sugar. They were called coconut honey almonds. Would these be the same recipie as yours, other than the powdered sugar?

And the coconut didn’t burn being cooked at 350 for 15 minutes?

Hi Carol, you put the coconut on after baking, so it won’t burn 🙂
