  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 120 degrees C. Line a pan with baking paper, and lightly spray the pan with olive oil spray.
  2. Lightly beat the egg white; add water, and beat until frothy but not stiff. Add the nuts, and stir until well coated. Add the tablespoon of honey, and mix.
  3. Mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts. Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the prepared pan.
