No Sugar Glazed Pecans

I had to delete the maple syrup due to the high fructose content, so I increased the cinnamon and used some English Toffee flavored liquid stevia for the sweetener. I overdosed on the cinnamon... I think less than half would have been plenty! BUT they are tasty, and sugar free, so I am happy!

1 lb. pecans
3 T. coconut oil
2 to 3 tsp. cinnamon (I used two TABLEspoons! wow, that was a lot of cinnamon!)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla
about 1 full dropper of English Toffee stevia (or to taste)

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes, stirring 1/2 way through to prevent burning, and to coat the nuts again. While they are cooling, continue to stir it occasionally to keep the "glaze" on the nuts.
