100g Pistachios
1 tablespoon Honey or maple syrup

1 Egg


Preheat the oven to 160C, line a baking tray with baking paper, tip the pistachios in to a blender and blend.

Whisk the whites of one egg and tip in to a mixing bowl. Tip in the ground nuts, sugar, honey and the zest of one lemon and combine thoroughly.
