Easy 3-ingredient Maple Roasted Candied Pecans. Just pecans, maple syrup and sea salt come together from start to finish in 30 minutes.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups raw pecans
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, plus more to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line medium baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine: In a medium bowl combine pecans with maple syrup until well coated. Sprinkle on sea salt and stir again.
  3. Bake: Transfer coated pecans to lined baking sheet, spreading out in single layer. Use a silicone spatula to scrap out leftover maple syrup and add to pecans on sheet. Bake for 6 minutes, remove to stir, then continue baking another 5-7 minutes, until you see maple syrup has soaked well into pecans (but make sure to not over-bake).
  4. Cool: Allow pecans to cool on baking sheet for 15 minutes – the pecans will harden as they cool. Make sure pecans are cooled completely before storing.
