Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans


Made with just 6 everyday ingredients that you will no doubt find in your kitchens, this may be one of the simplest recipes to make. Here’s what you will need:

Pecans. For this recipe we recommend using raw, unsalted pecans. Buy them already halved, so you won’t have to do the extra work of halving them yourself. We wouldn’t recommend substituting any other kind of nuts for this recipe, there is something about the combination of pecans, sugar and cinnamon that you can’t beat!

Brown Sugar. Brown sugar adds all the sweetness! You can use both light or dark brown sugar, whichever you have on hand will work.

Cinnamon. Cinnamon adds such a nice flavour that works well with the brown sugar. 

Salt. You can use regular table salt or sea salt for this recipe, whichever you prefer.

Egg White. Egg white is essential for coating the pecans with the sugar and cinnamon. You will only need one egg white for this entire recipe.

Vanilla Extract. Vanilla is such a nice touch that rounds out the flavours so nicely.

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Pecans

You will not regret making this recipe! The smells that will waft out of your kitchen and make your house smell heavenly. Also, despite the long baking time, it’s so incredibly easy. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Mix together the sugar, cinnamon and salt and set aside. 
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until light, foamy and frothy. It will take about 2 minutes. Then mix in the vanilla and add the pecans until they are coated evenly. 
  4. Next, spread the coated pecans in a single layer on the parchment paper lined baking tray and bake in the oven for about 1 hour, until they become fragrant and toasted. Make sure you stir every 15 minutes, so they don’t burn. 
  5. Once the pecans are finished baking, immediately take them off the tray and let cool completely.
  6. Serve and enjoy! To store, place in an air-tight container.
