Made without eggs, and just a handful of real food ingredients. This recipe is gluten free, paleo friendly, and vegan.

– raw pecans – maple syrup – avocado oil or melted coconut oil – cinnamon – vanilla extract – sea salt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with with parchment paper for easy clean up.

Spread pecans on parchment paper and top with maple syrup, avocado oil or melted coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla, and sea salt. Toss until well coated, and transfer to the oven.

Bake for 6 minutes, and remove from the oven to stir, so the pecans roast evenly and are evenly coated with the maple syrup mixture.

Then continue to take out and stir every 2 minutes or so for a total of  about 12-14 minutes – until bubbles slow dramatically and the maple syrup mixture is thick and clings to the pecans.

Keep in mind that the candied maple syrup will continue to harden as it cools. It should still be a little sticky, but quite thick.
