Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300°. In a bowl, whisk egg white until frothy; whisk in honey, sesame seeds, sage, cinnamon, cayenne, and salt. Add nuts and stir. Divide mixture between two large nonstick or parchment-lined baking pans and spread into an even layer.

  • Bake, stirring often with a wide spatula, until nuts are golden and fragrant, 20 to 25 minutes. To prevent sticking, turn mixture often with spatula as it cools. Serve warm or cool.
