Sugar, nuts, spice and everything nice… that’s what holidays are made of. Well you could probably add a few more ingredients like butter, gravy and chocolate. But this Spiced Raisin Nut Mix recipe is a quick and easy one for snacking and sharing during the season.
Happy New Year to you and yours!
There are many variations of spiced nuts. This one is special because of the raisins which give an added crunch, sweetness and chew to the mix.
Makes 2 1/2 cups.
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon organic evaporated cane juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 organic egg white
1 1/2 cups organic pecan halves
1 cup organic golden raisins
Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly grease with cooking oil.
Heat oven to 375°F. In a small bowl combine sugar, salt, cinnamon and cloves.
In a seprate small bowl beat egg white until frothy. About 30 seconds with electric mixer.
Add spice mixture to egg and stir with rubber spatula to combine. Stir in pecans and toss until evenly coated.
Spread nuts on baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in 5 minute increments, rotating pan 1/4 turn and gently stirring pecans (so they do not stick).
Bake 15 – 18 minutes total or until nuts and raisins are browned, but not burned. Remove from oven and cool completely before eating.
