A while ago I decided to focus primarily on the Tried & True crafts section of this blog and haven’t posted many recipes since then. Totally love cooking recipes still, just don’t love how messy my kitchen gets after!
This Air Fryer Sweet & Spicy Pecans recipe is so easy though!
It only requires four ingredients and 10 minutes in your air fryer and then you’re done. I highly suggest making a few batches because it’s going to be hard to keep your hands off them.
The Perfect Air Fryer
I’ve wanted an air fryer forever but didn’t want another appliance cluttering up my already small kitchen. Hamilton Beach Air Fry Sure-Crisp Toaster Oven to the rescue!
We don’t have a microwave so we use our toaster oven all the time. Having one appliance that can toast, air fry, bake & broil is not only saving us counter space but also is more energy and time efficient than your standard large oven.
Plus, it fits up to 6 pieces of toast or one 12″ pizza. Super important with three hungry & impatient kids!

Air Fryer Sweet & Spicy Pecans
- ½ cup powdered sugar

- Mix the powdered sugar, cayenne pepper, salt, and water in a medium bowl. Add the pecans and stir until covered.
- Spread pecans onto the air fryer basket and place in the top rack position in the oven. Make sure to put the baking pan on the lower shelf to catch any drips. Set oven to air fry at 300° for 10 minutes.
