Low Carb Holiday Goodness...

I made a comment tonight on Twitter about making some low carb roasted sweet pecans. After a few requests for the recipe, here it is :)

Sweet Spiced Pecans

• 1 egg white
• 1 tablespoon water
• 1 pound pecan halves
• 1 cup splenda
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
• 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Grease one baking sheet.
2. In a mixing bowl, whip together the egg white and water until frothy. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, salt, and spices.
3. Add pecans to egg whites, stir to coat the nuts evenly. Remove the nuts, and toss them in the sugar mixture until coated. Spread the nuts out on the prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes.


  1. Hi,

    7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
    If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

    Thank You,

  2. We made some for ourselves, loved it, made 3 lb to bring down for Christmas for entertaining and gifts... they were the hit of the holiday season!

  3. Hi Suzanne,

    Great recipe share :-)

    But for diabetics, please don't focus too much on low-carb diets. Make sure you include super foods in your diet.
