Cinnamon Candied Pecans (Paleo)

Oh my goodness! These are so good. John and I had gone to our grandson, Chandler’s, Volleyball competition at the convention center, and there was a vendor selling bags of these candied pecans.  I felt sure there would be a Paleo way to make these. The recipe below is a combo and adjusted recipe from the ones I found. This was also the most simple one. The only thing I am still not sure about is how to get the pure vanilla in evenly. This last test I added it to the coconut oil in the pan. This seemed to work well except that I should have added it before I heated the oil.


2 Cups Pecans

1/8 Cup Coconut Oil  or less (Just cover the bottom of your skillet well.)

3-4 TBLS Cinnamon Sugar (Your Preference on Spice/Sweetener amounts)

1 – 1 1/2 t. Cinnamon

1 – 1 1/2 t. Pure Vanilla

1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

How to:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line cookie sheet with Parchment Paper
  3. Place the Coconut Oil and the Pure Vanilla in skillet on low heat.
  4. Add the Pecans
  5. Combine the other ingredients and sprinkle over the Pecans
  6. Toss for a few minutes
  7. Place and spread evenly on cookie sheet
  8. Bake for 10 minutes


If you want to make these a little quicker and easier, this works too:

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Place Pecans on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake 7-10 minutes
  3. Place Coconut Oil in a big skillet
  4. Add the Cinnamon Sugar, Cinnamon, Salt (and some Vanilla Extract if desired.)
  5. Toss and cool

These are delicious on green salads::
