Sweet Chili Pecans
These sweet chili pecans are a delicious, healthy treat for the holidays, and they make a great homemade food gift. ($.68 per serving)
- 3 cups pecan halves
- 1 medium egg white
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tsp good chili powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees and grease a cookie sheet that has sides.
In a large bowl, beat the egg white and vanilla until frothy. Stir in the pecans.
In a medium bowl, stir together the coconut sugar, chili powder, and salt. Sprinkle this mixture over the pecans, stirring to coat evenly.
Spread the nuts on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. They’re done cooking when the topping is set. They’ll continue to harden as they cool.
Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
