  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 5 cups pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
  • Place the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat the whites until they are frothy, about 2 minutes. You can also use a handheld mixer for this.
  • Add the vanilla, cinnamon, salt and maple syrup to the egg whites.
  • Add the pecans to the egg mixture and mix until the nuts are coated.
  • Spread the nuts on a baking sheet that has been sprayed lightly with cooking spray or is lined with a silpat non-stick baking sheet.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, stirring the nuts every 15 minutes.


Add more maple syrup if you'd like them a little sweeter.
Use whatever nuts you'd like....almonds, pecans, or walnuts. We like pecans the best.
