Whole30 Cinnamon-Spiced Roasted Pecans

As seen on our Whole30 Challenge: Day 24. Click to read more!

I've never been a big fan of nuts, especially not pecans, until I started roasting them, which really does bring out their flavor. I never realized how much better roasted pecans tasted compared to just eating them straight out of the bag. I now roast a big batch and serve them on everything from salads to sweet potatoes to fruit, or even as a healthy snack.

To see the original recipe for Whole30 Sea Salt Roasted Pecans which are quite tasty too and only take 5 minutes, just click the link.

My original (non-Whole30) Candied Pecans recipe involves brown sugar, honey, and cinnamon, but in the spirit of all things healthy, this is a nice Whole30 substitute.
