Easy Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

by Sheryl

This easy, not fussy Cinnamon Sugar Pecans are the perfect snack and appetizer. A sweet, crunchy treat that you can easily make in a heartbeat. Excellent for any parties, holidays, Thanksgiving, or for when you need a quick sweet fix. I tell you, these are addicting! One time I made a batch and the kids never turned their backs until it’s all gone! These candied pecans or almonds are the first to disappear in parties that’s why I always make a few batches and just store them in an airtight container. These are perfect for gift-giving, too. Just put a cute tag or bow for a personal touch. And you’ll never miss this because the house always smells amazing whenever you’ll make this! This recipe will never be left behind no matter what!


1 pound pecans (and/or almonds)
1 cup of sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon salt (or your preference)
2 teaspoons water

How to make Easy Cinnamon Sugar Pecans

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 250 degrees.

Step 4: In a large bowl, add the egg white, vanilla, and water. Whisk using a fork until frothy.

Step 5: Stir in the pecans until completely coated.

Step 6: Transfer the pecans into the Ziploc bag. Seal and shake well until the pecans are entirely coated with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
