- 12 oz. NOW Pecan halves
Melt butter and spread in a 9 x 13 baking dish.
In a small mixing bowl, combine salt, cinnamon, erythritol, splenda, and thickener. In an electric mixer, beat egg whites until nearly stiff. Continue to beat while slowly adding the sweetener mix (from small mixing bowl) and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Fold in pecans. Spread mixture evenly in the buttered 9 x 13 baking dish and bake at 300 degrees for 40 to 60 minutes until nuts are toasty brown.
Stir every 5 to 10 minutes. On the last stir, sprinkle in the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. When nuts are browned, remove dish from oven and cool slightly. If necessary, dump nuts onto paper towel to remove excess butter. Nuts are sweet and crunch.
