  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl, toss together the almonds, salt, and spices.  Set aside.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the egg white with a fork or metal whisk until foamy. Drizzle egg whites over the almond-spice mix, using a spoon to mix and coat the almonds, until almonds are coated. The almonds should appear glazed and shiny and the seasonings will have begun to stick to the almonds.
  3. Bake almonds on a cookie sheet for 2 hours or until they achieve desired level of crispness.

Chef Tips

You don’t need to waste the egg yolk. Just add it to an omelet or some scrambled eggs. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper for easier clean-up and handling.

The oven temperature is set on low at 200 degrees, which means a longer bake time, so do this on a day you will be home for a while. It’s also a good recipe to prepare while you are meal prepping another dish for the week.
