Candied Pecans

Nothing says HOLIDAY’S better than candied pecans. I love making my own candied pecans because they are super simple, quick to prep, and only require 3 ingredients, it doesn’t get easier than that!

Make for the perfect holiday gift:

These make the perfect homemade gift for your loved one’s, a nice crunch factor to any salad, or a snack. Just be warned, they are highly addicting!

Ingredients you will need:

I like using Primal Palate’s cinnamon sugar cookie seasoning, which I think needs to be a part of everyone’s pantry staples. But if you don’t have that seasoning you can simple swap out with coconut sugar, maple sugar, and cinnamon. You’ll of course need raw pecans and some maple syrup.

How to make:

Making these candied pecans like I said are super easy and you’ll probably never go back to store bought one’s again! Simply add all the ingredients to a lined baking sheet, mix to make sure all pecans are coated. Bake 300 F for 15-20 minutes, keeping an eye out so they don’t burn. Once done let them sit for 10 minutes or so and enjoy!

How to store:

I like to store mine in an airtight mason jar either in refrigerator or pantry.
