Prep: 8 min
Cook: 25 min
Total: 33 min

Ingredients for 8 servings

Serving size: ~1/3 cup
  • Seasoning
    • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (OR brown sugar OR swerve equivalent)
  • 1 egg white, beaten into foam/froth
  • Nuts (3 1/2 cups – any combination of your favorite nuts)
    • 1 1/4 cups raw pecan halves
    • 1 cup raw almonds
    • 1 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper (to taste)


Step 1

Set oven to 350F.

Step 2

Mix together the seasonings in a small bowl and set aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl, beat an egg white until it becomes foamy or frothy, about 6 to 8 minutes.  It is VERY important that it becomes white and frothy.

Step 4

Add the nuts to the bowl, followed by the seasoning.  Mix everything together using a spatula and ensure every nut is covered in the seasoning.

Step 5

Line a baking tray with parchment paper, then add the seasoned nuts and spread them evenly on the tray, allowing them room to breathe.  Add a pinch of sea salt & pepper.

Step 6

Bake in increments of 8 minutes, shaking the tray or stirring the nuts each time.

Step 7

Allow them to cool to room temperature and get crispy.  Store them in an airtight container in a cool environment for up to 1 month.
