These can be used as a snack or dessert garnish, much like candied pecans.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup pecans, optionally chopped
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF.
  2. Place the pecans in a pie pan in a single layer and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until fragrant and lightly toasted. Use caution and watch closely, as nuts can go from lightly toasted to burnt very quickly.
  3. Add the maple syrup and cinnamon to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, and boil for 1 minute. Add the toasted pecans, stir well to thoroughly coat, and continue to cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring constantly.
  4. Transfer the pecans back to the pie pan, spread out in a single layer, and set aside to cool completely.
  5. When cooled, loosen the pecans from the pan, breaking into small clusters, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
