  • 1 large Egg white
  • 1/2 cup Sugar granulated
  • 1/4 cup Dark brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons Ground cinnamon
  • 16 ounces Pecans halves
  • 8 ounces Walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl toss together the white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  • In a separate bowl add the egg white and 1 tablespoon of water. Use a whisk or a hand mixer to whisk together until the egg whites become super frothy.
  • Once the coating ingredients are ready place your nuts in the bowl with the egg whites and stir together until they are well coated.
  • Use a fork, or a slotted spoon, to move the nuts to the sugar mixture bowl. Toss with the sugar and they are well coated.
  • Once the nuts are coated in cinnamon and sugar place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. It's ok if some touch you can break them apart when they come out of the oven but make sure it is just one layer, you don't want them stacked up on each other.
  • Bake at 300 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, stopping halfway through to toss the nuts around a little before letting them finish baking.
  • Once they finish baking, remove from the oven and let them cool completely and then serve or store them for later.
