Sweet and Spicy Pecans

I came up with this recipe for a going away party at work and everyone loved them.  They are great on salads, on top of Greek yogurt, or just as a tasty snack.  Be careful, though, they are addicting!

Sweet and Spicy Pecans

  • 2 cups raw pecans (and/or walnuts)
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1 TBS coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt honey and coconut oil in sauce pan over low heat.
  3. Add salt and spices to the honey/oil mixture and mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour honey/oil mixture over pecans and stir until nuts are completely coated.
  5. Pour nut mixture in to a 9x13 baking pan and bake for 15 minutes, stirring mixture every five minutes.
  6. Let mixture cool completely before serving.  Store in air tight container for up to two weeks.
  7. Enjoy!


  1. Have you tried roasting chickpeas/garbanzo beans yet?
