Mrs. Young, a lady I clean house for gave me these wonderful nuts one year as a Christmas gift. Our whole family enjoyed them so much that I asked her for the recipe. She got the recipe from an old magazine she had saved for years. It’s a healthy snack and would also be good to serve at a party.

2 egg whites, whipped

In another medium sized bowl, Mix together:
6 TB dark brown sugar
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
optional 1-2 tsp garlic salt (I used 1 and 3/4 tsp)

Add: 2 10 oz. cans Planters Mixed nuts (about 4 cups) or dry roasted peanuts

Whip the egg whites until soft peaks form. It’s easier if you let them warm up a bit at room temp. Add spices to the whipped egg whites. Add the nuts. Stir to coat well. Spray large cookie sheet with Pam. Spread nuts evenly on the cookie sheet.
Bake at 300 degrees for 10 mins.
Turn nuts over then bake 8 more minutes.
Cool on wire rack. Store in airtight container. I had to break the nuts up a bit after they cooled.

Mrs. Young mixes the cooled nuts with small pretzels, M&Ms and raisins, sort of like a Chex mix. They’re also very good plain.
