My favorite salads have lots of toppings. I don’t want a boring bowl of lettuce; I want a beautiful bowl of greens topped with amazing ingredients and a delicious dressing. That’s where these almonds come in.
I love adding sugared almonds to my salads to add extra crunch, extra flavor, and just a hint of sweetness. They’re perfect for fruity salads (like this Strawberry Salad), or anything that needs a little extra something. Toss these little guys into a bowl of lettuce and dig in.
Sugared almonds also make a great little snack on their own. Grab a quick handful when you’re feeling peckish, and you’ll get the healthy benefit of eating almonds, with a sweet twist from the sugar. And of course these make a great dessert topping too!

How to Make Sugared Almonds
This recipe is so simple and it only requires 4 ingredients: slivered almonds, egg white, sugar, and a bit of water.
You can jump to the recipe card for full ingredients & instructions!
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
- Mix the egg white and water together. Add the almonds and stir until well coated. Add half the sugar and mix well.
- Spread the almonds onto the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the last 1/2 of the sugar.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then take out of the oven, stir the almonds and return to the oven.
- Bake until the almonds turn light golden and become fragrant.
- Remove from the oven, lift the parchment paper off the pan and cool on a cooling rack.
Once they’ve cooled, you can store them in any container or resealable bags. They last quite a while at room temperature, but you can also freeze big batches to use later.
This same process can be used with other types of nuts too!
