A very quick and easy recipe, these sweet AND savory pecans are great for putting on salads or just for snacking! This recipe can be made using simple syrup but I’ve started using honey, which is just as yummy and a (somewhat) healthier alternative. A great little treat to serve at your holiday party, you can easily double this recipe. People will go nuts for these nuts! (I couldn’t resist)

Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 cups

Dietary Info: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free

  • 2 cups of raw pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup local honey or agave syrup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

    2. In a medium mixing bowl, drizzle honey over pecans. Add brown sugar, cinnamon and sea salt. Stir to thoroughly combine so that the pecans are evenly coated.

    3. In a single layer, place pecans on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove from oven and let cool for about 3 minutes before transferring to a serving bowl or airtight container. Enjoy!
