Whether you are following a paleo lifestyle or you are looking for some healthy snack options, these roasted spiced nuts are an incredibly delicious and simple recipe you can use to make in bulk and enjoy throughout your week.

The combination of spices, a hint of piquancy, along with slight saltiness and sweetness, and the natural nuttiness of the roasted nuts make this recipe a snack staple of your meal prep. 

What's the secret to a properly spiced nut mix? The egg whites and butter combination to help coat and bake the spices into the nuts. 

Below I suggest a combination of spices that make sense as a general outline. However, if you have a preference or a specific spice mix, feel free to substitute it instead of the one written below. Do keep the rest of the recipe the same and follow the blueprint to make sure you get a beautifully coated end product. 

You can make this recipe ahead of time and portion the nuts into small containers, or even keep them in a jar for easier access. These also make a great appetizer if you are having guests over!
