Serves: 4 cups
In four very simple steps, you can create a perfect spiced mixed nuts snack.
  • 1¼ teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 4 cups mixed roasted salted nuts*
  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the cayenne, salt, cinnamon, ginger, mustard powder, smoked paprika and sugar in a small bowl. Whisk the egg white in a large bowl until frothy. Toss in the nuts, then add the spice mixture and toss until well coated.
  3. Spread the nuts on the prepared baking sheet; bake until dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheet.
* The amount of salt you need depends on the kind of nuts you use. For this recipe I used roasted & lightly salted almonds and pepitas, but raw walnuts and pecans. I find that for types you wouldn't otherwise eat raw (raw almonds - ick), you need to use roasted ones for the recipe, since they won't really be roasting in the oven, just drying out. Adjust the salt content for the kind of nuts you bought.
