Cinnamon Sugar Candied Pecans

Cinnamon Sugar Candied Pecans

Candied nuts are the perfect snack, aren’t they? So versatile, and so delish, I use these cinnamon sugar candied pecans for things like:

Topping salads

Adding crunch to ice cream sundaes

Stirring into cookie, cake or brownie batter

Snacking out of the bowl

This recipe for cinnamon sugar candied pecans is super simple, but it yields gourmet results. Other recipes in the blogosphere will have you use egg whites to bind the sugar to the nuts, but I don’t think that’s necessary. Start with good, fresh pecans, a bit of sweetness, and a sprinkle of cinnamon, and you’ll end up with a perfect candied nut that can even be gifted as party favors!  Also, you can use this recipe to create candied nuts of any kind, like walnuts, whole almonds, cashews, and more.


  • 1 cup whole pecan halves
  • ¼ cup turbinado (raw) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (or more if you like)
  • a pinch of salt
