Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Use the convection setting on your oven if possible.
  • Move your oven rack so it’s centered in the oven.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg white, Bocha Sweet and cinnamon.
  • Place nuts in a medium sized bowl and mix in the egg white mixture until nuts are thoroughly coated.
  • Spread the nuts out on a medium sized baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 225 and stir.
  • Bake an additional 10 minutes at 225 and stir.
  • Reduce oven temp to 200 degrees and bake for two hours, stirring every 30 minutes.
  • Nuts will still be sticky when done.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool and set overnight or for 6-10 hours until nuts become crunchy!

Notes

High humidity environments should reduce oven temp to 150 and bake an additional 2 hours. The way to test this is the first time you make them… take 2-3 nuts out at each 30 minute increment after the initial 2 ½ hours. You have to let them sit for at least 3 hours before being able to tell if they are going to crisp up. Sometimes this takes up to 24 hours depending on the humidity level. Don't be afraid to leave them out to crisp up. From what I can tell, this has a lot to do with not using actual sugar in the recipe.
