Sugared Walnuts

Makes about 2 cups of nuts. Plenty for the Sage, Walnut and Fig stuffing, plus some to snack on.

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 natural cane sugar (low carb use artificial sweetener of choice)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons fine grain sea salt
  • 2 cups walnuts, shelled
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the egg whites, sugar, and salt until well combined.
  3. Fold in the walnuts, stirring until well coated.
  4. Place in a sieve and allow to drain for a couple minutes before placing the nuts in a single later on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Roast for 15 minutes, until the nuts take on a golden hue and the coating has dried out quite a bit and hardened.
  6. Remove from oven and cool

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
