Healthy Recipes: Spiced Pecans - and Other Winning Recipes from Diabetes Daily

The folks at Diabetes Daily tested healthy recipes for diabetics in their kitchen for a week.
Spiced Pecans - from Diabetes Daily
 
First place recipe contest winner, by Diabetes Daily member Dobelady, was for a healthy holiday recipe called Spiced Pecans. Perfect for a party snack or even a gift!
 
Makes 12 servings
 
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
3 cups of pecan halves
1/2 cup of Splenda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
 
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Line baking sheet with aluminum foil spray foil with a non stick cooking spray or use Silpat liner.

In a small bowl, beat the egg white and water until stiff peaks form. Stir in the pecans until well moistened.

In a small bowl mix Splenda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mix into nut mixture. Spread nuts on prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring at 10 minute intervals. Be careful not to over cook and burn the nuts. Let completely cool before tasting and enjoy!

Second Place was a healthy eating recipe disguised as a decadent and delicious treat called Blueberry Cheesecake Bars.
 
Third place was a satisfying vegetarian recipe called Matzoh Stuffed Vegetables.
