Sweet and Spicy Nuts
I started making these around the holidays. I tried a number of recipes and tweaked them a bit to come up with this. I store them in canning jars, on the counter and they are usually gone within a week. Everyone loves them.
1 tsp. organic cinnamon
1 tsp. organic cardamom
1 tsp. organic allspice
1 tsp. Celtic or sea salt
½ tsp organic curry powder
1/8 tsp . organic cayenne pepper
1/3 cup swerve (or erythritol or organic sugar)
2 organic pastured egg whites
4 cups organic mixed nuts (I’ve been using a mix of almonds, walnuts and pecans)
Preheat oven to 250°
In a large bowl, mix all the nuts and spices together.
In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy and foamy. I use a stainless steel bowl.
Pour the egg whites over the nut mixture and mix until combined.
Spread the nuts out on a baking sheet.
Bake 30 minutes – then removed from oven and mix it all up again – then put back in the oven for another 30 minutes – 1 hour total baking time.
Cool and store in jars – enjoy!
