Sweet & Spicy Roasted Almonds

Posted on January 17 by

Ingredients

14-16 oz dry roasted almonds, walnuts or pecans
1 egg white

Sweet & Spicy Seasoning

2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ cup granulated baking stevia
1 tbsp coconut sugar or regular sugar

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat Mat OR non-stick aluminum foil. In a medium bowl, whisk egg white until frothy. Stir in stevia, sugar and spices to combine. Add nuts and combine until they are all coated with the spice mixture.
Spread out nuts on the pan and bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, making sure to watch them towards the end so that they do not burn. Allow to cool completely before storing- a mason jar works great.

Recipe Notes

Look for nuts that are dry roasted (no oil or salt added). If you can’t find these, you can roast raw nuts for about 15 minutes on 300 degrees to toast them before adding to the spiced egg mixture. If you don’t use dry-roasted nuts in this recipe, the end product won’t be as crunchy.
I used baking stevia to keep the sugar lower. Don’t swap honey or agave for the sugar as these will burn easier and add too much liquid.
Carefully watch the nuts towards the end of cooking time! They can burn easily!
