  • 2 tablespoons gochujang or sriracha
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups almonds raw


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Mix hot sauce, syrup, and nutritional yeast in small bowl.
  • Line sheet-pan with silicone pastry sheet or parchment paper. Put almonds in a medium sized bowl. Pour liquid mixture over the nuts and evenly coat them by swirling the bowl.
  • Arrange nuts in one even layer on the lined cookie sheet. Cook for an hour. At the halfway mark, rotate the pan. At 45 minutes in, taste test a nut to see if it’s done. It should taste less chewy or waxy, and just better, to be honest. If not, go for another fifteen minutes.


Any type of nut will work in this recipe. Try one and a half tablespoon of coconut sugar with one and half tablespoon of honey if maple syrup is not an acceptable option. 
Sriracha tastes amazing, but will produce sticky results
