Pecan recipes, usually associated with sugar-laden treats like pecan pie, can actually be good for you. This Buttery Cinnamon Pecans snacks recipe from Debbie Johnson uses only 5 wholesome ingredients to make one of the best snack ideas for your health. Try out this recipe next time you need all natural party snacks recipes. Debbie says, "This recipe was inspired by a 'Spiced Pecans' recipe and helps to fulfill my desire for pecan rolls or cinnamon rolls or both combined! And I don’t miss the bread part at all. With this you have all the richness and flavor, more for your palate to enjoy. And evidently, pecans are also rich in anti-oxidants. When roasted, they taste like cookies to me!"


This recipe comes from best-selling author Debbie Johnson, who is also former owner/exec. chef of restaurant with whole menu GF/LG, Allergy-Friendly, Vegan to Meat. See
