Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper and set aside.
- 3 cups whole almonds
- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- Few drops of water
- 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon chai spice mix (or half cinnamon, half ginger would work)
- Pinch salt
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg white, vanilla bean paste, and water until frothy. In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, chai spice mix, and salt.
Add the almonds to the whisked egg mixture and stir to evenly coat all of the almonds. Add the sugar and spice mixture, and toss until all of the almonds are covered.
Spread the almonds out on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring twice. Spread the almonds out on waxed paper or parchment paper to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
