  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper. ¬†
  • Whip the egg whites and vanilla until they become foamy. Coat the pecans with the egg white mixture.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and mix well.  Pour the mixture over the pecans and mix, making sure the pecans are coated evenly.
  • Make sure the pecans are arranged in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through. At the 15 minute mark, add the melted honey and stir the pecans. Place back in the oven for the remaining 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. 


  1. The egg whites gives the pecans a nice crisp outer coating, so don't skip this step. If you don't use the egg whites, your pecans will likely be sticky.
  2. Make sure the pecans are arranged in a single layer to ensure even roasting.
  3. Store spiced candied pecans in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. They can be stored at room temperature or in the fridge if desired.
  4. To freeze: Allow the pecans to cool completely so the coating hardens, then place in an airtight container and freeze for up to one year. To thaw, place in the fridge overnight.
