2 cups mixed raw nuts
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon sea salt
2 tablespoons firmly-packed dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
4 slices bacon
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the nuts and egg white in a bowl and toss to coat evenly.
In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, salt, and spices. Add the spice mixture to the nuts and mix so they are thoroughly coated.
Spread the nuts on the baking sheet into a single layer. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the nuts are lightly toasted. Remove them from the oven and transfer them to a plate to cool.
Brush the bacon slices with maple syrup and arrange them in single layer on the same baking sheet. Bake until crisp, or about 20 minutes. Remove the bacon from the oven and let it cool. Chop into small pieces.
In a serving bowl, combine the bacon and nuts, then serve.
