Glazed Pecans

These are one of my husband's favorite treats! 

He can't eat just one...handful...he always goes back for more.

They are rather addicting, so consider yourself warned.

The recipe I made was using white sugar, because that is how hubby likes them -
but you could easily substitute xylitol or erythritol.

I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does. 

Remember, they make fabulous gifts!

I started with 1lb of pecans

I mixed 3 Tbsp of egg whites with 1 Tbsp of water until frothy, then poured it over the pecans and mixed well so that all the pecans were coated.

I mixed 3/4 cup of sugar with 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp salt and then poured this onto the pecans.

Stir well so that all the pecans are nicely coated with the sugar mixture.

Dump them onto a bar pan lined with parchment paper and spread into a single layer, or as close as you can get to it.  Then bake at 250 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Then you can enjoy them warm out of the oven, save them for later or package them up for a special homemade gift!

Glazed Pecans

3 Tbsp egg whites
1 Tbsp water

Mix until frothy and then pour over

3 Cups of pecans

Stir until all pecans are coated

Mix together:
3/4 cup sugar (xylitol or erythritol for THM)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt

Then pour the sugar mixture over the coated pecans and stir until well mixed.

Pour onto a bar pan lined with parchment paper and spread out as much as possible.

Bake at 250 for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.

Store in an airtight container - if you have any left after taste testing!

(For Trim Healthy Mamas, use your sugar substitute and these are an S snack)
