Candied Maple Pecans

These sweet-and-salty pecans are completely addictive! They’re fantastic on desserts and are also perfect on cheese boards, salad and soups (they also make for a great snack or appetizer on their own).

Servings: 1 cup


  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • teaspoon cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pour the pecans onto the baking sheet and drizzle with the maple syrup. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and season with salt. Toss well. Bake until the nuts are a shade darker in color and aromatic (the maple syrup should be sticky and caramelized, not wet) about, 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle the pecans with a bit more salt, them let cool completely (they will harden as they cool).


Do Ahead: The maple pecans can be refrigerated for up to a month or longer (if they last that long!).
