5-Minute Candied Pecans
Yields: about 1 cup
These sweet and crunchy pecans are the perfect cozy snack! They require very little time to make, and they disappear even faster. The pecans will keep for at least two weeks if stored in an airtight container, and the recipe is easily doubled or tripled to serve more. (Just remember to use a larger pan!)
  • 3 tbsp (40g) Truvia
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon, or to taste
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1 cup (112g) pecan halves, left whole or chopped
  1. Cut a large sheet of foil, and place it on the counter.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the Truvia, cinnamon, and salt. Mix in the water until all of the ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Add the pecans to a small pan, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant. Reduce the heat to medium, and add the cinnamon mixture. Stir constantly with a spatula until the pecans are completely coated. Transfer the mixture to the prepared foil, and let the pecans cool completely to room temperature and the coating has hardened and turned crunchy.
Notes: I highly recommend chopping the pecan halves! This creates more surface area, so you’ll have a larger cinnamon-coating-to-nut ratio.

Granulated sugar or brown sugar can be substituted for the Trvuia.
