Servings: 2 cups

- 2 teaspoons cardamom
- 2 teaspoons nutmeg
- ½-1 cup brown sugar (coconut sugar may be subbed; *see note)

Heat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
In a large bowl, toss together the pecans, egg whites, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, brown sugar and salt.
