Love is sweet, spicy and a little bit nuts, so in honor of St. Valentine, we’re celebrating all three in this healthy recipe for dessert.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine one egg white with 1/4 C. sifted powdered sugar and whisk until no lumps.  Add in 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. cayenne pepper, 1/4 t. salt, and 2 T. brown sugar and whisk to combine.  Add 2 C. pecan halves and stir until thoroughly coated.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.  Add coated nuts and spread around on pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned and crispy.

Remove from oven and let cool.  Optional, toss with a handful of red m&ms.
