Cinnamon Roasted Nuts

  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-6 cups raw, unblanched almonds or pecans
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (or Splenda)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg

In a large bowl, beat egg whites until frothy, then beat in vanilla. Add nuts; stir gently to coat. Combine the sugars, salt and cinnamon in a measuring cup; add to nut mixture and stir gently to coat. Spread evenly onto large parchment or foil-lined rimmed baking pan. Bake at 225° for 45-60 minutes or until nuts are crisp but not burnt, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool, then separate. Store in an airtight container. 

For sugared pretzels, melt 1 stick butter and 1/2 cup brown or white sugar; stir in 6 cups salted pretzels. Bake on 300 for 30 minutes, stirring halfway.
