Cinnamon Roasted Pecans recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Cinnamon and sugar coated pecans that were warm and softened from roasting in the oven; they were so delicious warm off the tray, we couldn’t keep our fingers off of them. Even though she watched me make them and saw how simple they are, my sister insisted that I post the recipe for her asap.

I have a few different recipes that I really love for roasting nuts, Ginger and Honey Roasted Almonds, Candied Walnuts, Sweet and Spicy Roasted Almonds. I wanted to make flavored pecans for a salad and I just didn’t want to spend even the few minutes stirring and standing over the hot stove.

I found this method at Simply Scratch and it worked perfectly. Whisk, toss, coat, toss and roast. That’s it. No stove-top time is required at all. This is the easiest sugared and roasted nut recipe I have ever made and the nuts turned out perfectly.
