These are so fantastic as a snack or with cocktails before dinner or a party, but more importantly they are perfect as a gift. You can make them weeks in advance, as they keep for about two months.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 3 tsp kosher salt or 2 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 7 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 3 tsp smoked chili powder, or any chili powder you like, to taste
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 egg whites
  • 4 cups mixed nuts, but pecans and almonds work best
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Method

Preheat oven to 300°F.

In a food processor, pulse oats along with salt, sugar, chili powder and rosemary.

In a large bowl, combine egg whites and nuts and toss to coat well. Stir in the granola mixture and toss, making sure all the nuts are well coated.

In a small bowl, mix together the honey and olive oil and drizzle over the nuts. Toss together one last time.

Place the nuts on a parchment-lined sheet and bake until crisp and the nuts are toasted through, about 30 minutes. Let cool completely before wrapping.

Scoop into beautiful jars or bags and secure tightly with a lid or ribbon to ensure freshness.

TIP These nuts can be made saltier, sweeter, spicier or more herbaceous—experiment and enjoy!
