My cousin Ami served her father’s Christmas Garlic Pecans a few years ago, and they were delicious and addictive. I think I kept pestering her to make it since then because I never knew that pecans could taste so good. In the past few years, I have discovered other recipes for pecans. Here is a raw holiday pecan recipe spiced with cinnamon and rosemary. People never guess that this is a raw treat. Enjoy!

Raw Holiday Pecans
2 cups raw pecans
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
2 Tbsp. fresh rosemary
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. agave syrup

  • Soak the pecans overnight. Drain and rinse.
  • Dehydrate at 110ºF until dry. (This process aids in digesting the pecans.) If you are short on time, simply use raw pecans.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
