Sweet and Savory Nuts


These nuts get an extra kick from a sprinkle of ancho chili powder.


  • 1 large egg white

  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2 cups nuts (pecans, walnuts, and almonds)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Lightly beat egg white in a large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except nuts, mixing until slightly frothy. Fold in nuts.

  3. Spray or lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet. Pour mixture onto sheet, spreading nuts out in a single layer. Bake until crispy, 40 to 45 minutes, turning once after 20 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
