Sugar & Spice Almonds and Cashews

Howdy!

So as most of you have noticed, it is FINALLY starting to get cooler! No more 100 degree days, nice cool mornings perfect for running, FOOTBALL SEASON is here… it is time for fall!!! So to kick off fall, we need a nice fall tasting treat! The other day, my family and I were trying to find a great tasting treat to make the house smell amazing, and so I decided to make some Sugar & Spice Almonds and Cashews!!! They are so yummy, so delicious, and they taste like fall! And the best part is, they are simple to make! So let’s get started!

You’ll need…

Ingredients

1 egg white

1 tbsp water

1/3 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup white granulated sugar

1 tsp sea salt, fine

¼ tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground nutmeg

1 lb nuts (I use a mix of almonds and cashews, but you can use whatever you prefer)

You’ll need to…

Preheat your oven to 300°.  Mix all of your dry ingredients in a medium bowl, and set aside for later. In a large bowl, beat together the egg white and water until frothy.

Add the nuts, and mix until all are well coated with the egg/water mixture. **This is what makes the sugar mixture stick to them, so it’s important they all get coated well!

Add the dry ingredients, and mix until all the nuts are evenly coated with the sugar and spice mix.

Place on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper or a silicone baking mat (I used a Silpat Baking Mat, and it worked PERFECTLY!) and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and let cool. Separate nuts while cooling to prevent them from sticking together.

OMG. Spiced just right, so sweet, so delicious!!! They seriously taste like fall.. maybe that’s why they disappeared so fast! Seriously, they last for less than a day! I took some to work, and I think they were gone in 5 minutes! So give them a try… they’re super easy to make, and taste absolutely amazing! And a great way to welcome fall 🙂

I hope you enjoyed learning how to make these, now go make them yourself! You won’t regret it, I promise!

Love,
