Sugar ‘n’ Spice Mixed Nuts

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling


5 cups

A crunchy, spiced seasoning nicely coats a variety of nuts in this tasty recipe. These nuts disappear whenever I set out a bowl.


  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 cup unsalted dry roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted sunflower kernels
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a bowl, combine the egg white and butter. Add the peanuts, walnuts, cashews, almonds, pecans and sunflower kernels. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt. Add nut mixture and toss to coat.
  2. Transfer to a greased shallow 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Bake at 275° for 45 minutes or until toasted and crisp, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
