Cinnamon Sea Salt Roasted Walnuts


It's summer and you need beach snacks! What better snack than something that doesn't need to be refrigerated, is healthy, and gives you that punch of protein? 



Here's a recipe I've experimented with and created, that I sent to John while he was deployed. He loved them, and I think you will too!

You'll Need:
  • 3 cups raw walnuts (pecans also work)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cinnamon to taste (at least 2 tablespoons)
  • sea salt to taste
Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 300 F. 
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg white until it is bubbly and the white is broken up. Add nuts to bowl and mix until nuts are evenly coated in egg white.
  3. Mix in cinnamon until nuts are evenly coated.
  4. Spread onto a cookie sheet, sprinkle sea salt over mixture, and bake at 20 minutes without stirring.
