Learn how to make candied pecans with just 4 healthy ingredients and 5 mins of prep!
Happy October! Fall + Pecans = Tasty Awesomeness. Just thought I’d start out with a bit of yummy math this lovely morning. 😉 Let’s face it, yummy math is the only math I like.
Remember how I told you that something about the fall makes me crave ALL of the pecans? And then I proceed to share ALL of the recipes bursting with pecans?
Well, it turns out that y’all love pecans as much as I do! High-five for shared likes! High-five for edible commonalities! Oooh… edible commonalities. Doesn’t that totally sound like a fancy restaurant or something?
Anywho, a while back, I shared my skillet-roasted cinnamon maple pecans, and while they were a big hit on Pinterest and the like… they lacked one very important thing.
Like, who even cares about baking on a baking blog, right? 😉
Oven Roasted versus Skillet Roasted Pecans: Who wins?
All sarcasm aside (like anyone has time for sarcasm in the fall), some folks didn’t always prefer the whole “watch very carefully while stirring frequently, and try not to burn the pecans” thing. Imagine that. Dang it, what did I say about sarcasm?
Oven roasted wins!! For now… 😉

How to Make Candied Pecans
Without further ado, let’s get into how to make candied pecans.
Stir… All you have to do is throw together pecans, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Stir with vigor (if you’re so inclined), as this is like the only “tough” thing you’ll have to do. I kid. About it being tough! 😉 Then, pour that maple syrup and coconut sugar over the pecans like it’s your job and you love it. Yeah!!
Stir More & Fold until the pecans are well coated. Then, dump those pecans ever so gracefully on the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 15 minutes, stir and flip, then bake for a few more minutes. Cool, then boom! All done!
Cool and Eat… Most importantly, cool and eat the vegan candied pecans you learned how to make. 😉
