  • Mix butter into warm pecans and toss to coat. Turn heat to medium; add maple syrup and stir pecans with a heat-proof or wooden spoon until syrup begins to bubble, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn heat down to low and continue stirring pecans until syrup begins to caramelize onto the pecans, about 5 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat, sprinkle salt over pecans, and stir.

Cook's Note:

Substitute coconut oil for the butter, if desired.

These are the best sweet roasted pecans I have ever made or eaten. There is no heavy sugar coatin but just a glaze that lightly sweeetens the salted nuts. I used half the syrup called for in the recipe and they were still sweet enough for my taste. This is the recipe Ihave been looking for for years!
