Everything Bagel Almonds

Everyone loves a snack of healthy nuts and my Everything Bagel Almonds are just that! Savory, garlicky, oniony, a little salty, and studded with sesame seeds for even more texture. Be warned, they are addicting!

Seasoned Almonds

Ever want to indulge on some nuts but not the sugar coating that comes with candied nuts? Let me show you how to get some crazy good flavorful glazed almonds without all the sugar!

And on top of not having a sugary coating, how about a savory, garlicky, toasty, crispy, almond?

My Everything Bagel Almonds use just a touch of sugar, but mainly use soy sauce and my Homemade Everything Bagel Seasoning!

A quick glazing process and a warm nap in the oven and you have some amazing almonds to snack on!

Savory Roasted Almonds

I am a sucker for nuts when it comes to snacking. I can’t pass the bulk section in the market without going over and grabbing a few bags of raw pecans, walnuts, and almonds.

Brooks loves cashews the most, but when he runs out he starts grabbing for my pecans. I have to hide them in the freezer just to be able to keep some on hand for my baking projects.

Nuts are great for snacking as they are packed with nutrients but I can’t resist ones that are seasoned or candied.

A crispy coating of sugar and spices on the outside of a toasted nut makes healthy snacking even better.

There are a couple of ways to keep candied nuts on the healthier side such as using palm or coconut sugar instead of refined granulated sugar.

Using only a tiny bit of sugar combined with other savory ingredients and flavors such as soy and fresh herbs.

And, of course, making sure you are eating appropriate portions and not an entire 2-pound bag at one time.

This last one might be hard to follow but you should at least try!

Ingredients Needed

To make these Everything Bagel Almonds, start with a small saucepan. Nothing too wide as the glaze will spread out too much and coat the pan and not the almonds.

Combine soy sauce or a gluten-free alternative like tamari or coconut aminos and a small amount of brown sugar in the pan over medium-high heat. Once the sugar is dissolved, add a little of the Everything Bagel Seasoning.

Bring to a boil and add the raw almonds to the pan. Stir to coat the almonds and reduce the heat to medium until the glaze is absorbed by the almonds and the liquid is all but gone.

Spread the almonds onto a prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with some more Everything Bagel Seasoning. Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven, stir the almonds, and spread out into a single layer. Sprinkle with a little more Everything Bagel Seasoning. Bake for another 10 minutes, and repeat the process again for a total of 30 minutes. 

After the last cooking session, turn off the oven, crack the oven door open, and let the almonds dry out to seal the glaze on them. Store in an airtight container for up to a week if they last that long!

How to make Everything Bagel Almonds

  1. use parchment paper or non-stick foil on the baking sheet to keep the almonds from sticking to the baking sheet.
  2. do not use a non-stick spray as it keeps the almonds from drying out completely.
  3. have the oven preheated and the baking sheet prepared before cooking the glaze as the process moves quickly.
  4. do not toast the almonds beforehand as they will be over toasted and have a burnt taste after the 30 minutes of cooking.
  5. dry the almonds in the oven after it is turned off to help them fry faster.

Can I use white soy vs regular soy sauce?

Yes you can but they will have a slightly sweeter flavor.

How long do they dry in the oven?

After you turn the oven off, about 30 minutes. I like to keep mine in for about an hour to make sure they are really dry but if not make sure to stir them up in their storage container to keep them from sticking to each other.

Are they gluten free?

Because they use soy sauce in the glaze they are not gluten-free. If you need them to be gluten-free, you can use Tamari in place of the soy, just be sure that it is gluten-free!

I used cashews for this recipe and almost everyone who’s tried them is now addicted. (The one who wasn’t over the moon has a terrible sweet tooth and prefers my spiced almonds.) This recipe is a keeper! Thanks!


Friday 12th of August 2022

Thank you! This made my day! I am so glad everyone liked them. I'm currently on the keto diet and I am trying different ways to make these with a sugar alternative.


Friday 10th of December 2021

These are fabulous! I’ve made 4 batches so far! Thank-you for recipe!

@Linda, what temperature do you set your oven? I don't see that in the recipe? I love honey/thyme almonds so these sound fantastic!


Friday 10th of December 2021

so glad you like them!!

My almonds taste really good and I can see how they can be addicting. They are soft rather than crunchy. Is that how they are supposed to be? I didn't have my oven preheated so maybe the problem is having the glaze on them too long before they were put in the oven?


Wednesday 8th of December 2021

They should be on the crunchy side for sure. Definitely preheat the oven beforehand.

how small of a saucepan should I use? is 6 inch too wide?


Friday 4th of June 2021

Not at all! Just be sure to keep an eye on it and really keep stirring as it can burn easily, especially with the surface area being larger.


Friday 4th of June 2021

It's not too wide but just be sure to really keep stirring the mixture so it doesn't burn with that much surface area.
