Candied Cinnamon Pecans

Prep Time
5 minutes
Cook Time
3 hours


  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups pecan halves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1-3 cups water
  • Olive oil spray


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the egg white and vanilla extract until frothy, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the pecan halves to the bowl and gently fold them in until they are coated with the egg white mixture.
  3. Add the sugar, brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon to the bowl. Again, gently fold everything together until the pecans are well coated with the sugar and spices.
  4. Spray the inside of the Aroma multicooker inner pot with olive oil spray.
  5. Add the coated pecan mixture to the inner pot. Pour in 3 cups of water; do not stir.
  6. Set the multicooker to the lowest Slow Cook temperature setting and set the timer for 3 hours. If your lowest time setting is longer than 3 hours, use a separate timer to keep track of the cooking time.
  7. Stir the pecans every half hour, and add more water if needed to maintain a little bit of liquid in the pot. This prevents the cooker from turning off due to lack of liquid.
  8. When the cooking time is up, turn off the cooker and carefully remove the pecans from the inner pot. Spread them evenly on a cookie sheet to cool.
  9. Once fully cooled, you can break the candied pecans into smaller pieces if desired.
  10. Serve and enjoy the delicious candied pecans!
