1 cup raw whole cashews

1 cup raw whole walnuts

1 cup raw whole almonds

1 cup raw pepitas

1 egg white

1 teaspoon water

1/2 cup sugar

¼ teaspoon Spice Islands® Sea Salt

½ teaspoon Spice Islands® Cayenne Pepper

½ teaspoon Spice Islands® Chipotle Chile Powder

Whisk together the egg white, water, sugar, salt, cayenne and chipotle pepper and cinnamon. Drizzle mixture over the nuts and toss to combine, making sure they are evenly coated.

Once they are completely cooled, transfer to an airtight container.
