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!

egg whites
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 lb
pecan halves
2 Tbsp
ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp
cheyenne pepper, optional
1/4 c
raw sugar or granulated sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 325°. In a bowl beat egg whites till frothy, add vanilla and pecans, stir nuts until coated with egg white mixture. Add in cinnamon, Cheyenne pepper and sugar, stir well. Spread pecans evenly onto a baking pan greased with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring once after 10 minutes. Allow pecans to cool completely before serving. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.

Note: You can use 1/2 cup Xylitol (which is an all natural sugar substitute), in place of sugar.

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 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! =)
