Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw pecan halves
  • 1 1/2 cups pretzel nuggets
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 XL egg white plus 1 Tbl water *see note to make them vegan

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line a large rimmed baking pan with parchment.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the 2 sugars and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. Beat the egg white and water together until frothy. To a large bowl add the pretzels and pecans along with the egg mixture. Stir to coat evenly. Add in the sugar mixture and stir to coat.
  4. Pour the mixture out onto the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway, until the sugars have caramelized and started to brown.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven, cool on the pan for 10 minutes and using a heat-safe spatula gently sir/help break up any clusters. Allow to cool completely on the pan (~an hour) before storing in an airtight container.

Notes

Vegan/Egg free

To make vegan use 3 Tbl Aquafaba in place of the egg mixture.
