Spiced Nuts Recipe

Can be made ahead.  I usually make extra, this is a great snack food and guests like to munch on nuts before the main meal.


  • 2 teaspoons of blue agave
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ to ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 large egg white
  • 4 cups mixed nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, and/or cashews)



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk blue agave, salt, and spices in a small bowl.
  • In a large bowl, whisk egg white until light and frothy.
  • Add nuts and toss until evenly coated with egg white.
  • Sprinkle blue agave and spice mixture over nuts and toss well.
