Trouble shooting spiced nuts

Ttrockwood | May 8, 2014 03:25 PM

I've followed various recipes in the past and always manage to have spiced nuts that are delicious yet sticky or leave a greasy slick on your fingers....!
I want to make a housewarming gift for my low carb friends and don't want to ruin the $30 of raw nuts I bought.
I would like to use coconut oil, minimal sugar, (do i need it?) and a combination of smoked paprika, cinnamon, black pepper, and sea salt.

So many recipes have different techniques!
I would appreciate feedback on the best way to make some yummy nuts that will keep at room temperature yet not be sticky or greasy! Do I need to use an egg white? Or bake at a long low temperature? Cook stovetop and then bake?
