According to me pecans are better tasting than walnuts, so I used them in banana bread and Armenian nutmeg cake etc when recipes called for walnuts. Even though pecans are not as rich in Omega fatty acids like Walnuts they are good alternative for walnut. Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats. I have some pecans left even after making banana bread and Nutmeg cake. When I saw recipe of candied pecans in Smitten Kitchen as well as my friend Alea’s blog Premeditated leftovers, I got courage to try this recipe. Alea used chai spice, where as Deb used cinnamon and cayenne pepper.
