Sugar-free candied hazelnuts
Ingredients (for several servings)
  • 300 g toasted and peeled hazelnuts
  • egg whites from ½ large egg
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Salt (skip in case of hypertension or fluid retention)
  • 1. Beat the egg whites with a fork.
  • 2. Put the hazelnuts in a bowl and add a bit of egg whites. Mix until fully coated. Add just enough egg whites to moisten the hazelnuts so that the seasonings stick well.
  • 3. Add a pinch of salt and sprinkle a generous amount of mint and ginger.
  • 4. Mix well together and spread the hazelnuts onto an oven tray.
  • 5. Bake at 160°C for five or six minutes so that the egg whites dry out.
  • 6. Remove from the oven, let cool and serve.
