Deliciously Nutritious Nuts

Ingredients

  • 1 raw egg white
  • 250g of Mixed Nuts (pecans, cashews, almonds, walnuts and macadamias all work perfectly)
  • 1 heaped tbsp of brown sugar (or equivalent in sweetener of choice works as well)
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp of salt
  • 3 tsp of cinnamon (can add more or less based on preference)

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line a baking tray with grease-proof paper.
  • In a clean, dry bowl, use an electric mixer or food processor to whip egg white to soft peaks.
  • Add the nuts, sugar, salt and cinnamon to the egg mix and stir gently until all combined.
  • Remove the mix from the bowl and lay it out on the tray, evenly and in a single layer.
  • Bake for 12-15mins or until you see the nuts change to a golden brown and become crispy. You may like to stir the mix half way through baking.
  • Allow the nuts to cool on the tray before breaking them up to put in an airtight container. Best stored in the fridge.

Vegan Adaptation:
Use a chia egg in replacement to the egg white, but just no need to whip.
