Author Notes: I developed this recipe after finding that so many "spiced nut" recipes either used a ton a sugar or a lot of fat (butter or oil). Because I use egg whites instead, the end product comes out not only very tasty - but healthier, too. Besides, the egg white makes a crisp shell on each like, almost like a candy coating. You can use any mix of nuts you like, and easily double or triple the recipe.incrediblecrunchyflavor

Serves 3 cups

Spice Mix

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice or nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Nuts and Coating

  • 3 cups roasted, unsalted mixed nuts
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • extra salt for sprinkling (I prefer highest-quality here.)
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. mix spices together well.
  2. Pour egg white over nuts and mix well to coat thoroughly.
  3. Add spice mixture to nuts gradually, mixing well each time to ensure even coating.
  4. Spread nuts on a lined baking sheet and sprinkle with highest-quality salt, to taste.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, toss, bake for another 15 minutes.
