  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 cups raw whole cashews, whole almonds, walnut halves and/or pecan halves
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar or brown sugar substitute equivalent to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300ºF. In a medium bowl, combine egg white and the water; beat with a fork until frothy. Add nuts; toss to coat. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a large plastic bag, combine brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper. Add nuts; shake well to coat. Spread nuts evenly in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan.

Step 3

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until nuts are toasted and coating is dry, stirring twice. Transfer to a large sheet of foil. Cool completely. Scoop 1/4 cup of the cooled nuts into each of 16 Reynolds KITCHENS™ Wax Paper Sandwich Bags. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
