Sweet and Spicy Nuts - Nuts, Craisins & Four Pantry Items


This recipe can be easily customized to accommodate whatever combination of nuts you have on hand.  Cashews, peanuts, almonds...all wonderful!


  • 3 cups of your favorite nuts (almonds, cashews, pecan halves, peanuts)
  • 1 cup of Craisins
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne/ground red pepper


Take three cups of your favorite nuts, preheat the oven to 350 degrees, then grab the rest of your ingredients.

In a big bowl, use a whisk to whip up the egg white to a frothy mess.  Add brown sugar, cinnamon and cayenne to mix up.  Toss in the nuts and cranberries, stir to coat.

Pour the mix onto a cookie sheet, pop in the oven for 10 minutes, then fold them over a bit, continue baking for another 10 minutes.  Let everything cool down, then store in airtight containers until you're ready to share.  Which might be never.
