Paleo Spiced Nuts

Spread some Paleo cheer this season! This is a great gift idea for your Paleo friends...
Hope you enjoy!

egg white from one large egg
2 1/2 C assorted unsalted nuts (I used almonds & pecan halves)
1/4 C *Raw Coconut Crystals (I found this at New Leaf Market... they probably have it at Whole Foods, too)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Beat egg white until foamy. Combine all remaining ingredients, except nuts. Whisk into egg white. Stir in almonds and pecans until well coated. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn down temperature to 250 degrees. Toss and separate nuts with a metal spatula. Return the nuts to the oven and bake for about 10 more minutes, until medium brown. Remove form oven and toss again. Let them cool. They will crisp as they cool. Break up any that stick together. Store at room temperature, in an airtight container. Makes 2 1/2 Cups. I suggest making an extra batch or two! Divide, put in a decorative package and give to your Paleo friends!
