South Beach Diet Spicy Nut Mix

An outrageous blend of nuts, soybeans, and spices makes a supercharged snack that provides an energy boost. Don't be put off by the number of ingredients — the mix takes just 5 minutes to put together. We recommend packing small amounts of the cooled mixture into resealable bags for quick grab-and-go snacks. Roasted edamame is available at supermarkets and specialty stores. If you can't find it, just add more of any other nut to make 5 cups.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 225°F In a small bowl, add first 6 ingredients and blend. In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Whisk in spice mixture. Add nuts and sugar substitute; toss to coat.
  2. Evenly divide nut mixture between two nonstick baking sheets, preferably with sides. (If sheets are not nonstick, line them with parchment paper.) Spread nuts to evenly cover sheets. Bake 1 hour 5 minutes, until nuts are dry and toasted. Stir every 20 minutes. Cool on baking sheet.

This is an amazing snack! I made this and used a different mix of nuts: pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds and cashews. Very flavorful without being overpowering.
