Toasted Almond Honey
This quick combination of toasted almonds and sweet honey promises to become one of your favorite pantry staples.
This Toasted Almond Honey is a great pantry staple and so versatile. It’s perfect atop so many different sweet and savory treats! I typically double this recipe and store it in the pantry for a while, turning to it whenever I’m looking for a sweet, syrupy topping with a bit of toasty flavor and crunchy texture.
I love to drizzle this over sliced berries with freshly whipped cream like you see here. My entire family also enjoys it on pan fried sourdough bread with some butter and flaky salt, atop ice cold vanilla ice cream where the honey slightly hardens into a gooey candied shell, over creamy yogurt and chewy granola, and with at-home brunch go-to’s like pancakes, my Eggnog Croissant French Toast, fresh fruit bowls, and even fries or potato hash. When we entertain, this is a beautiful addition to a large charcuterie board for drizzling over crackers, cheeses, and fresh or dried fruit.
This is such a simple recipe, but the presentation is so beautiful, people will think you bought it from a gourmet food market!

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 5 Minutes (if toasting the almonds yourself)
Yield: 8 Ounces
1 cup honey
⅓ cup toasted sliced almonds
Add a third of the almonds, and then a third of the honey to an 8-ounce jar (a larger jar is fine, too). Repeat in layers until honey is the final layer on top.
Allow to combine on its own in time by sitting and setting, or if you want to use immediately, use a narrow spoon or the thin handle end of a utensil to gently stir and combine. Store at room temperature. Drizzle over berries, toast, yogurt, oatmeal, cheese and crackers, ice cream, or serve in a small bowl on a charcuterie board with a spoon or honey dipper stick. To intensify the flavors, sprinkle with flaky salt when using.
