Ground espresso coffee, walnuts, sugar and other ingredients used in this recipe.

Ingredients:

Nonstick vegetable oil spray
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons finely ground Allegro coffee beans (preferably espresso roast)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1 large egg white
4 cups walnut halves (about 12 ounces)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray. Whisk sugar and next 4 ingredients in small bowl. Whisk egg white in large bowl until frothy. Add walnuts; toss to coat. Sprinkle walnuts with espresso mixture and toss to coat. Spread coated walnuts on prepared sheet in single layer. Bake 5 minutes. Slide spatula under walnuts to loosen from baking sheet and stir, rearranging in single layer. Bake until walnuts are dry to touch, about 5 minutes longer.
