Step 1

Preheat oven to 275 and prepare baking sheet with sides - I line mine with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Step 2

Combine brown sugar and ground cinnamon, set aside.

Step 3

Whisk egg white in large bowl.

Step 4

Add dried cranberries and nuts, stir. Add miniature pretzels. Sprinkle with brown sugar mix and gently fold until combined, careful not to crush the pretzels.

Step 5

Spread onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Watch carefully, oven temperatures vary and they aren't so good burnt!

Step 6

Remove from oven and stir, evenly distributing nuts and berries. Spread in a single layer to cool on parchment paper. Cool completely or they will be soft/soggy - they firm as they cool. Store in covered containers.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was great, a nice snack and easy to make and I would probably make it again, I wasn't sure how thick to beat the egg white I just whisked it with a fork and that seemed to be okay, thanks!
