Ingredients

  • 1 pound raw, unsalted almonds
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspooon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Instructions

  • Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F using a mild wood like maple, pecan, or alder.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy. Mix in the 2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine the brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Stir until the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  • Pour the almonds into the egg white mixture and gently stir until the almonds are all evenly coated.
  • Pour the cinnamon sugar mixture over the almonds and stir again. 
  • Once the almonds are covered in the sugar mixture, pour them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet that has been lightly coated in cooking spray. Spread the almonds into a single layer.
  • Place in your smoker and cook for 1 hour, or until the almonds are no longer sticky (this could take an extra 15-20 minutes, depending on your smoker). Remove them from the heat and allow them to cool slightly before breaking them up and enjoying them.
  • Make sure the almonds are completely cooled before transferring to any lidded or sealed container.
