Two recipes for wonderful sweet spiced nuts! The recipes are for 1 egg white, so you can double, triple or multiply it at will. 



For both:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cups nuts of choice

Recipe 1:

  • Dash to 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 

Recipe 2:

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF /180ºC.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum paper. Reserve.
  3. In a bowl lightly beat egg white with sugar and salt until thick and foamy, about 1 minute with a fork or whisk. 
  4. Add paprika and extra ingredients depending on what recipe you're making (recipe 1 or 2, above).
  5. Add nuts and mix until well coated. 
  6. Spread on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. 
  7. Remove, stir the nuts with a spatula being careful not to tear the paper, and return to the oven 10-15 more minutes, stirring once more before they're done. 
  8. Remove from oven and immediately stir again so they don't stick while cooling down.
  9. Let cool completely and store in airtight containers.
