Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Lakanto Golden Sweetener (or another low-carb sweetener)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 12 oz raw pecans (about 2 3/4 cups)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and set aside for now.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the sweetener, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside for now.
  • Add the egg white, water, and vanilla to a large bowl. Whisk it until it’s frothy.
  • Stir the pecans into egg mixture in the large bowl, being sure to stir them around well and get all the nuts coated.
  • Add the cinnamon sweetener mixture to the large bowl, tossing the pecans well to make sure they are all fully coated.
  • Spread the pecans on the baking sheet in a single layer. Place them in the oven.
  • Bake at 300 degrees for about 30-40 minutes, stirring after the first 15 minutes, then again after another 10 minutes, then every 5 minutes thereafter. When done, the pecans will no longer be wet with the egg white mixture, and they will be a deep golden brown color.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet, then remove and store in a jar, airtight container, or zip top bag. For best quality, enjoy within 2-3 weeks.
