Pumpkin Spice Roasted Cashews

Is pumpkin spice still a thing during the winter holidays? Or is it just a Fall thing? Anyways, I love pumpkin when it's cold. So really, that means, in California, I only enjoy pumpkin from Thanksgiving to about New Years. These are super simple to toss together but oh so addicting! They've got just the right amount of holiday spice and are perfect for snacking on.

Pumpkin Spice Roasted Cashews

What you'll need:

  • 3 cups raw cashews
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
  • pinch of salt
What to do:
  1. Preheat your oven to 400F. In a large bowl, whisk the eggwhite with a pinch of salt until doubled in volume and foamy. Whisk in the maple syrup, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice until combined. 
  2. Toss in the cashews and mix until they're all coated with the mixture. Spray a baking sheet with oil (I used this), but feel free to use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spread the cashews in a single layer. 
  3. Bake for 10 minutes at 400F. Turn oven down to 350F. Toss the cashews and rotate the pan. Bake for an additional 10 minutes at 350F. 
  4. Remove from oven and allow the cashews to cool. They'll get nice a crispy as they cool completely. Enjoy!
