Jar of Nuts

3 lb bag (48 oz) pecans (I used Costco’s Kirkland brand)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup Sucanat, date, or coconut sugar (learn more)
1 tablespoon of cinnamon or pumpkin spice
3 tablespoons raw honey
*omit sugar and honey for Candida diets

Directions

1.   Rinse pecans and toss nuts in coconut oil.
2.  Add sugar, shredded coconut and spices.
3.  Roast pecans for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
4.  Toss nuts at least once.  Checking them so they don’t brown too much.
5.  Toss the honey after taking nuts out of oven.  I usually add a tad bit more cinnamon too!
