Nothing sweet or innocent about this party snack. They're insidiously addictive, with a salty-spicy-toasty flavor. Try this recipe with cashews only... yummmmmmm! And have plenty of refreshing cold drinks on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss nuts in egg white.
  2. Combine the seasonings and sprinkle over the nuts in a greased or non-stick baking sheet.
  3. (Alternatively, you can combine the seasonings with the egg white and coat the nuts that way).
  4. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 25 minutes.

I like the adjustments of the cumin and oregano, try using parchment paper in you pan to cook them. Added 2 tbs Worcestershire to a batch, cut the salt a bit if you do...was very tasty

Can't believe that I forgot to review this one!! Love these - make them as outlined. I have found that they taste better if made earlier in the day before serving in the evening.

These are really good. I used a combination of cashews, pistachios, almonds and macadamia nuts, which worked very well. Following the advice of other reviewers, I added 1/8 tsp of garlic powder and backed off on the cumin a little. Good advice, although when they were baking the garlic smelled very strong and I thought I had used too much. Not to worry - while they were in the oven, a group of friends stopped by and they gave the nuts (still slightly warm) rave reviews. I stirred them after about 15 minutes, which made them pick up more of the spices from the pan. Next time I think I'll add about 1/2 tsp more sugar. Thanks for a great recipe! KK
