How to Make Maple Brussels Sprouts

Today, we’re making maple roasted, maple glazed Brussels sprouts in the oven! To start, we’ll begin by preheating the oven to 400F. Then, lining a baking sheet with greased foil.

Now, wash and pat dry Brussels sprouts. Trim off the ends and slice each Brussels sprouts in half.

Next, add the Brussels sprouts to a large mixing bowl with oil, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat.

Pour the Brussels sprouts into an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Then, remove any stray leaves to avoid burning. We’ll add these back in later.

Storing Instructions for Maple Brussels Sprouts

This maple Brussels sprouts side dish is best served right away. When served fresh, this dish is warm, sweetly fragrant, and boasts crisp edges with tender centers. When served hours or even days later, this crispness and fresh deliciousness is gone.

I recommend making this maple Brussels sprouts recipe in advance and keeping warm as little as possible before serving. If needed, you can store cooled Brussels sprouts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Reheat in the oven or the microwave until hot. But, the original crispness will not be there.

Suggested Toppings for Maple Brussels Sprouts

As you can see from my photos, my favorite toppings for these maple Brussels sprouts are dried cranberries and pecans. However, you can take your dish in a different direction:

  • Dried cranberries + pecans (my preference)
  • Dried apricots + sliced almonds
  • Sesame seeds + raisins
  • Keep it simple with just a drizzle of maple syrup
  • A dash of paprika, cayenne, and black pepper for a sweet ‘n spicy kick

Maple Brussels Sprouts: sweet maple syrup complements tender-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside Brussels sprouts while nutty pecans and tartly sweet cranberries finish off this beautiful and easy Thanksgiving side dish.



Tools Needed:

Maple Brussels Sprouts

  • 5 cups Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or cooking oil of choice
  • Salt and pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoon chopped pecans (optional)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons dried cranberries (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup


  • Drizzle of pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Lightly grease.
  2. Wash Brussels sprouts and pat dry with a towel. Trim off the ends, then slice Brussels sprouts in half.
  3. Add Brussels sprouts to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and a pinch of pepper (or to taste). Toss to coat.
  4. Transfer Brussels sprouts to the prepared baking sheet, making sure to spread sprouts into an even layer. Remove any stray leaves as they’ll burn if baked for the entire duration of the cook time. You’ll add these in later.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Stir and flip so everything is evenly baked. Add in loose leaves from earlier.
  7. Bake for an additional 12-16 minutes (mine took 14 minutes), being careful not to burn.
  8. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven. Optionally, add pecans and cranberries, if using. Drizzle with about 3 tablespoons maple syrup. Stir to coat every Brussels sprout.
  9. Return to oven and bake for 2-4 more minutes.
  10. Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy! Optionally, drizzle with maple syrup. Enjoy!


Storing Instructions: Maple Brussels sprouts are best on the first day. If needed, cool completely, then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Heat before enjoying.

  1. Thank you for this! I’m always trying to get my kids to eat more veggies, but they’re just so darn picky (hubby too 😜). But when I made this, they actually ate it! Can’t tell you how wonderful that was. I hope you’ve got more recipes like this coming, because my fam is ready to eat them!
