rosemary pecans

Naturally occurring antioxidants in pecans may help contribute to heart health and disease prevention. By adding just a handful of pecans to your diet each day could help inhibit unwanted oxidation of blood lipids, thus helping prevent coronary heart disease.

12 oz pecan halves
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried rosemary (I also add chopped fresh rosemary)
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

Mix all ingredients into a bowl and stir to evenly coat pecans. Spread mixture evenly onto a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes (or until lightly browned).
