Spicy nuts

I make these spicy nuts every December. They are so good!They're not hot, just spicy. If you like them hot just add more cayenne pepper.


  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder (I use ancho)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggwhites
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
How to:

Heat oven to 200 C or 400 F. Mix the spices, salt and sugar in a bowl. Lightly whisk the eggwhites and pour over spices. Add the nuts and stir. Put a baking sheet on an oven tin and spread the mix out over the sheet. Roast in oven for 15-20 min. You need to stir the nuts a few times during roasting. I set my timer for every 5 min. Let cool.
