Ingredients

  • 4 c raw pecans
  • 1 egg white
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • c brown sugar
  • c sugar
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ginger
  • ¾ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Spray the bottom of slow cooker with oil. Add pecans to the slow cooker. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg white, vanilla, and water until frothy. This will take about one minute. Add to the pecans and stir well to coat.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pecans and toss well to coat. Cook on low for 2 and a half hours, stirring every 30 minutes.
  • Remove pecans from crock pot and lay on parchment paper and allow to cool completely.
  • Store in an air tight container for up to one week.

Notes

  • If your pumpkin spiced pecans come out sticky after cooling, they have not cooked long enough. You can pull a few pecans out and and cool them off to test and see if they are ready. If they seem very sticky, cook them a bit longer.
  • You can roast these candied pecans if preferred. Bake at 250°F for about an hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes.
  • You can use other nuts if desired. I often toss in cashews and almonds as well. Pecans can be very pricy, so this can bring down the cost of making this recipe.
  • I have not made these egg free, but aquafaba-- the liquid in a can of chickpeas-- may be a good option to substitute if you need an eggless version. 2 tablespoons is the equivalent of one large egg white. It will become frothy as well!
