Maple Candied Pecans

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups 1x


  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans (roughly chopped, if desired)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt + more, to taste


  1. Place pecans and syrup in a skillet over medium-low heat. Stirring constantly, continue cooking the pecans and syrup while the syrup thickens and the water cooks out, about 5-7 minutes. When the water is nearly all evaporated, sprinkle the salt over the pecans.
  2. When the water is evaporated, and the pecans are getting caramelized, spread the mixture out onto parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle with additional salt, as desired. Allow to cool completely (the syrup will continue to harden as they cool).
  3. Eat plain, or mix into your favorite salad, trail mix, or popcorn.
