  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk to combine. Add in the nuts, and toss until they’re evenly coated.
  3. Spread the candied nuts in an even layer on the rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring every 15 min until pecans are fragrant and evenly browned, about 30 min total.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, at least 15 min. When you take the nuts out they’ll still seem “soft”. Don’t worry, they crisp up after they cool.
  5. Store cooled candied nuts in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
