Lisa Ann DiNunzio Recipe

Roasted Cinnamon Pecans

By Lisa Ann DiNunzio Lisa_Ann


I make this recipe two ways, one batch with raw sugar, and another using Xylitol for family members watching their sugar intake. These pecans are good for you, yummy & easy to make! There is a lot of cinnamon in this recipe because it's said that it helps people with diabetes. Even though I don't have diabetes, I still make the recipe with all the cinnamon, I like the "spicy sweet" flavor!!! Feel free to add less cinnamon, if desired! Hope you enjoy!

    Quick question though...should that be tablespoons of cinnamon? Most other recipes are teaspoons. :o)

    The recipe truly calls for tablespoons....cinnamon is suppose to help those who have Diabetes...so that is why that amount is used. You can use less if you like, but I have always used the whole amount, and everyone seems to love them! =)
