  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 30 min
  • Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 7 cups 1x


  • 4 cups nuts (I used baking pecans, walnuts, and roasted almonds)
  • 1 large egg white, room temp
  • 1 TB vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 TB ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate coated pretzels
  • 1 cup chocolate coated raisins
  • 1 cup dried cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 300F, with rack on upper middle position. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg white and vanilla until very frothy. Add all nuts to frothy egg mixture. Stir to coat evenly.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add sugar mixture to the nut mixture. Stir until fully coated.
  4. Spread nuts in a single layer on parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake for 30 minutes, quickly stirring 1-2 times in between. Let cool completely. Toss with pretzels, chocolate raisins, and dried cranberries. Sub with any add-ins you prefer. Store in airtight container.
