Recipe:  Cranberry Orange Nuts

 

                                                                              

Ingredients:

  • 2 3/4 c. nuts (almonds, pecans, walnut chunks)
  • 1/3 c. coarsely chopped dried cranberries
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/3 t. orange oil
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/4 + 2 T. sugar
  • 1/3 t. salt
  • 1/3 t. cinnamon

Put nuts and cranberries in a large bowl. Whisk egg white in a small bowl until bubbly. Whisk orange oil and vanilla into egg white. Pour over nuts and stir until coated. Mix sugar, salt and cinnamon in another small bowl and pour over nuts. Stir until all nuts are coated.

Spread in a large, greased (oil spray or dairy-free margarine) cookie sheet with sides. Bake at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until well toasted and dry. Cool and store in an airtight container.

Notes: If you like your almonds toasted more, toast them for an extra 5 - 10 minutes before making the recipe.
