Cinnamon Truvia Pecans

I love pecans, but I them even more when they have cinnamon and sugar on them! 
This recipe is low carb and and sugar free because it uses Truvia a natural sweetener that doesn't have affect on your blood glucose or insulin levels.

What you will need:
1 egg white
1 tbs water
1 pound of pecan halves
1 cup Truvia
1 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F

In a large mixing bowl whisk egg white and water together till it is a little frothy.
Add nuts into egg mixture, and stir around the pecans till they are all covered.
In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients together, 
then pour the mixture in with with the nuts.
Stir the nuts until nuts are coated in the cinnamon sugar mixture. 
Spray a pan lightly with coconut oil and spread out the nuts. 
Bake in the oven for 1 hour, stir the nuts every 15 minutes.
Let cool, and enjoy!




These are a great sweet treat you don't have to feel guilty about! 
To add some extra flavor add a tsp of pure vanilla to the egg mixture instead of water. 
Or you can add any type of flavoring you like your nuts to have. 
If you want to have the nuts with less coating just add more nuts 
to the batch and keep the other ingredients at the same amounts. 
You can eyeball it as you stir the nuts to see if you should add more or not! 
Experiment and have fun with it!

Let me know what you think, or if you have any other recommendations 
on how to make this recipe even better!

Enjoy!!!
