I’m giving you a fair warning. These are addictive. They have everything you want… sweet, savory, spicy, and salty. I highly suggest portioning these out or you’ll go through half the batch before you realize it.
Spicy and Sweet Roasted Nuts
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 large egg white
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup unsalted cashews
1 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
1. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, salt, chipotle, cumin, oregano, and chili powder.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the egg white until it begins to get foamy. Pour the nuts into the egg and mix until they’re evenly covered.
3. Mix in the spices. Lay the nuts out on a baking pan lined with parchment. Cook in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes, tossing in between. Shut the oven off after the timer goes off and leave the nuts in the oven for another 15 minutes.
