Nutty Crisps

These crisps are addictive and i have to thank Lee Ping for sharing this recipe. She has step by step pictures and it is here http://hipfood.wordpress.com/. I made the original using almond flakes and then another batch with cashews, therefore, i have named them Nutty Crisps. This is one of those recipes which is easy and have the least of ingredients and i think it is healthy too as only egg whites are used. This is one way to use up the egg whites accumulated from making cookies which required egg yolks only.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 - 2 cups nuts - almond flakes/cashews etc
3 egg whites or 6 tbsp egg whites
1/3 - 1/2 cups fine granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp almond essence/butter oil
2 tbsp oil
1/4 cup flour

Method:

Spread the nuts on to the baking sheet.

Turn on the oven to 350F convection to preheat and put the baking sheet with the nuts to roast.(you are roasting the nuts starting with cold oven/0 degree f )

Turn on timer to 10 mins for almond flakes and 15 minutes to cashews(time differs with different oven, so check the nuts at 5 minutes interval for doneness)

Line a silicone sheet on another baking sheet and put in all the ingredients. Mix thoroughly and spread out as thinly as possible. (If silicone baking sheet is not available, line the baking sheet with aluminium foil and grease the foil lightly)

Put to bake for 16 minutes and the crisps should brown at the sides. Turn off oven and leave the crisps to brown. Check the oven every 5 minutes, crisps should be totally brown and crisp in 10 - 15 minutes.

Remove crisps from oven and leave to cool. Once it has been cooled, it can be broken up at random and enjoy.

Very confused as to whether to combine all the ing. in a bowl first or just spread it out onto the baking sheets straight away. I suppose i need to combine the egg whites and flour first or how ...agh? Wanted to try but immediately but doubtful over the method.Plse guide me on this. Thanks alot.

yes you can put the tray back into the oven but wash it as it burns fast at this stage.

the crisps will harden and be crispy when cooled

Hi Lily, do you reckon these keep well in an air tight container? Would love to save some for CNY... that's if my husband and I don't gobble them up by then :)
