Honey Roasted Sesame Almonds

Honey Sesame Almonds with a hint of salt are a quick-to-fix. A great nibble, travel snack, or when company’s coming. I think they’re one of the very best snacks.

How to make Honey Sesame Almonds

With just a few ingredients, these nuts are easy to make for a quick nibble or when company’s coming. Also good for travel snack. Spice them up with hot sauce if you like like Siracha, Tabasco, or harrisa.

  • Melt honey to coat almonds and sesame seeds
  • Bake 15 minutes

On the stove, heat, stir honey, sesame seeds, salt, and water together until almonds are coated, 2-3 minutes. Spoon nuts into a single layer on a baking sheet. For easy cleanup, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Then bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven to cool. You may hear sesame seeds popping. The almonds will be sticky and will crisp as they cool.

What are the health benefits of almonds?

Almonds pack some healthy punches. Protein, fiber, and 12 vitamins and minerals are just some almond’s benefits. The fat in nuts is the heart healthy monounsaturated kind.  An ounce of plain almonds has about 130 calories. That’s about 23 almonds or 1/4 cup. If you’re at your desk, they’d cover a 3×3 Post-it note. 😉 but that’s 6 grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fiber.

I’m happy to share this recipe for one the the best snacks ever: super easy, glazed Honey Sesame Almonds. But before we get to the recipe, pull up a chair and let’s talk about what I’m nuts about.

Why I’m Nuts About Being an Entrepreneur

I read a blog post about why the author liked being an entrepreneur, which got me to thinking about my journey. What is it that’s driving me to be my own task master? I came up with these:


I like the flexibility to set my own hours. I’m pretty sure I’m spending more time at work and than when I was a full-time employee for someone else. But I like that I have been able to play tennis, take my dog on a walk, enjoy a cup of cocoa (or a La Croix) from somewhere other than my desk, and work from anywhere.


I like to travel and wanted my business to take to the skies. As a speaker, I’m honored that I’ve been invited to New York, Oregon, Arizona, Utah, Kentucky, Nevada, Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Delaware, Rhode Island and beyond. I write about travel and my fun and favorite recommendations here.


As an nutrition educator, I couldn’t be happier that I impact others with news they can use. I’ve spoken to thousands of people on reclaiming your better self, improving productivity and focus; reducing food waste at home; and improving communication skills to help people take the stage with confidence. My LiveBest webinar series and books Your 6-Week Guide to LiveBest, Simple Solutions for Fresh Food & Well-Being and LiveBest Seasonally are helping people improve their lives so that they live the life they want.
