Candied nuts are a great snack, and this recipe is not loaded with sugar (and calories) like the ones you find at the store. This recipe is high in protein and great for kids.
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 cups whole pecans
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Start by melting the coconut oil in the microwave in a small bowl. Place the pecans in a large bowl, add the melted coconut oil and toss. Add the cinnamon and continue to toss gently. Spread the pecans out on a foiled baking sheet. Bake at 250° F for about 25-30 minutes. Toasting the nuts in the oil will help them caramelize and bring out some sweetness. Allow the nuts to cool and then enjoy.
Serving nuts in colorful mini muffin wrappers is a fun way to control the serving amounts along with keeping this snack cute and colorful.
