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 🙂
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper.
- In a large skillet, combine the coconut oil, coconut sugar and syrup over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to bubble, add the pecans. Mix and cook for 3 minutes.
- Spread the pecans over the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt. Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden. Cool on the baking sheet for 30 minutes before breaking apart.
Simple, glazed pecans make a delicious addition to salads and desserts. It’s also amazing eaten unadorned.
