Pumpkin spice pecans are a fun snack during the holiday months!
The pecans are tossed with egg whites, brown sugar, vanilla, sea salt, and pumpkin spice seasoning, and then are dried in the oven until crispy.
If you don’t have pumpkin spice blend on hand, you can always make some yourself with the spices in your pantry.
It’s a combination of 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. That’s it!
Because nuts contain phytic acid, I soak them overnight in salt water so they are easier to digest and don’t rob the body of necessary minerals.

You can eat the pumpkin-spice pecans alone as a snack, serve over ice cream or yogurt, or toss with a festive fall salad!
