  • 1 egg white lightly whisked until foamy
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup macadamias whole
  • icing sugar  to serve


  • Preheat oven to 175°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine lightly whisked egg white, sugar, spices and salt in a bowl and stir through the macadamias so they are completely coated. 
  • Using tongs, transfer the nuts to the tray and place in a single layer, ensuring they are separated. 
  • Roast for 15 minutes, checking regularly towards the end to make sure they do not burn. They are ready as soon as the coating appears a little glossy and is hard to touch.
  • Allow to cool before serving or storing in a container or jar. Sprinkle with icing sugar if desired.
