Candied Ginger Pecans

Pecans have a rich buttery flavor that can either stand alone or be enhanced with other ingredients (pecan pie, for example). This is an easy recipe to have on hand for a nutritious snack or when friends drop by to visit. Because pecans are rich in minerals, antioxidants and fiber, they help improve cardiac and digestive health, strengthen immunity and improve skin and hair quality.

Servings: 6-1 oz. (12-14 pecans)
Yields: 6 cups

Ingredients

1 lb pecans
¼ cup egg whites
½ cup Fifty50 Low Glycemic Fructose Granulated Sweetener
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground lavender (optional)


 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 225 F.  Butter a 9”x13’ baking pan and set aside.
  2. Place the pecans in a large mixing bowl. Pour the egg whites over the pecans and mix thoroughly until well coated.
  3. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and sprinkle over the nuts. Stir well.
  4. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Remove the pecans from the oven and allow to cool before placing them in an airtight container.

Refrigeration will extend shelf life to several months.
