Glazed Pecans

Crunchy and sweet – glazed nuts are a delicious addition to salads, or simply eaten on their own.

However, nearly all glazed nuts are made with refined cane sugar, which is something that we are all better off avoiding completely. Since I love glazed nuts on my arugula salad so much, I came up with this simple, easy recipe for Glazed Pecans using coconut sugar and pure maple syrup rather than refined sugars.

Enjoy a sprinkle over your favorite salad, or take a little bag of these as a snack. However you enjoy these sweet treats be sure to do so in moderation 🙂

    Everyone loves these! Made great Christmas gifts along with roasted sprouted almonds. Do you have a recipe for almonds?

    Delicious and healthy unless you keep eating and not stopping, which is easy with this recipe. I used this same recipe with cashews. So good! I would guess this recipe is great with so many different kinds of nuts.
