  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pound walnut pieces and halves
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. 
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Whisk together egg white and water in mixing bowl until frothy. I use a hand-whisk but an electric whisk is also fine. Stir in vanilla extract. 
  • Add walnuts to mixing bowl and coat evenly. 
  • Combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt in large plastic bag. 
  • Pour coated walnuts into bag and shake to coat walnuts evenly with cinnamon-sugar mixture. 
  • Spread walnuts out onto baking sheet in a single layer. 
  • Bake for 40 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes. 


You can swap in pecans or almonds for the walnuts if you prefer! These cinnamon seasoned walnuts are the perfect snack!
