Print Recipe


  • 1/2 egg white
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 cup slivered almonds see note
  • 1/3 cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
  • Mix the egg white and water together.
  • Add the almonds and stir until well coated.
  • Add half the sugar and mix well.
  • Spread the almonds onto the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
  • Bake for 10 minutes; then take out of the oven, stir and return to continue baking.
  • Bake an additional 8-10 minutes until the almonds turn light golden and become fragrant. Watch them carefully the last couple of minutes - nuts will burn quickly.
  • Once golden, remove from the oven, lift the parchment paper off the pan, and cool the almonds on a rack. (If left on the cookie sheet to cool, the almonds might burn.)
  • Serve and enjoy.


We used slivered almonds, but you can use this same technique on any type of nut.
