You will also love this easy keto nutella recipe and you could even use these on a healthy chocolate sticky bun! There is nothing better than the smell of freshly roasted candied pecans, something about them just makes you smile. These are so quick and easy to make, you can have them on hand all of the time when that sweet craving kicks in (which for me, is ALWAYS).  You won’t be able to eat just one. These are crunchy, sweet, and AMAZING! I love me some candied nuts and this combination of sweet cinnamon and vanilla makes these the ultimate sweet snack. Mix it in with your popcorn for a sweet & salty snack, add them to a salad, give as a gift, add to your ice cream – or eat them completely on their own, you really can’t go wrong! Even chop them up and add them to some of your other baking.

Frequently Asked Questions About Candied Pecans

Are candied pecans gluten free?

This recipe is completely gluten free!

Why are my candied pecans soft?

Let the candied nuts cool for about 45 minutes minutes or until completely cool. You don’t want to package warm nuts or the moisture will cause condensation which will soften the candy coating.

Do candied pecans need to be refrigerated?

These candied pecans do not need to be refrigerated. I recommend storing them at room temperature in an airtight container.

Can I freeze candied pecans?

Yes! To freeze, allow the pecans to cool completely after baking, and then transfer them to an airtight container.
