Skillet Roasted Maple Cinnamon Pecans: this 5 minute maple pecans recipe is quick & easy! The ultimate maple roasted pecans with cinnamon & coconut sugar. Paleo, Dairy-Free, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free.




  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut sugar, cinnamon and maple.
  3. In a large, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, add coconut oil and the coconut sugar mixture. Stir until melted and smooth.
  4. Add pecans and increase heat to medium. Stir until pecans are thoroughly coated. Switch to stirring occasionally, allowing pecans to soak in the sugar mixture. Watch the pecans closely. Stir until the sugar mixture is almost completely soaked up and the pecans are sticky like taffy. This will take 3-5 minutes.
  5. Pour pecans onto the prepared baking sheet, creating an even, spread out layer. Set baking sheet on a cooling rack. Allow to cool for 1 hour. Break apart into desired size. Enjoy!

  1. Loved these! Followed someone else’s commented variation and added a little vanilla. So good and so easy!

  2. Hi LR, thank you! The coconut oil is derived from a coconut tree–so totally plant-based. 😉 Can’t wait to hear what you think!

  3. Hey, thanks for this. I made a few variations I wanted to share with you. I added a little vanilla, fresh ground cinnamon, didn’t have coconut sugar so I used a half packet of Truvia. So yumm-didli-mmmm!

    1. My pleasure, Yolanda! 🙂 I’m so happy that you enjoyed this. What a fantastic idea to add vanilla, ground cinnamon and Truvia. 🙂 I can just imagine how wonderful your home smelled when you were making these. Thanks for taking the time to let me know about your variations. 🙂

  4. I love candied nuts. These look so good! I like the idea of giving candied nuts out for the holidays. A) around Christmas, you can get tired of baked goods and B) they’re a good option for people with gluten or dairy intolerance (although, of course, nut allergies are also a thing.)
    As for me, I am in no hurry to see pecanless recipes. Pecans ftw!

    1. There’s just something about the holidays that make candied nuts totally necessary. 😉 Agreed with both points! Sometimes you just need a break from the oven, and you’ve got friends with diet restrictions. 🙂 Thanks so much, Joyce! 🙂

    1. The combo is SO delicious! Be sure to let me know how you like it! 🙂 Thanks so much, Megan. 😉

  5. I’m so far behind on visiting your site and recipes Demeter! My bad 😉 Here’s the deal in my household: I LOVE pecans and the hubby doesn’t. The good news is all the pecans are for me! Can’t wait to try these 🙂

  6. I could eat these all day. Growing up in Georgia we had a big pecan tree in our yard and back then I took them for granted. Now that I can’t just get them when I want I am starting to realize how lucky we were to have a tree in our yard. This recipe will be on my gift giving list this year. Thanks

    1. Woah, that must have been awesome!!! I can only imagine how wonderful it was… Ya never know til it’s gone, right? Lol. Hope you and your family enjoy this, Celeste! 🙂

  7. Is it possible to become an addict from pecans like these? 😉 Pecan-less should NEVER be a thing, nor should chocolate-less. My sympathy goes out to two friends of mine who will never be able to experience the glory of chocolate or pecans because they’re allergic. I can’t even think about that! Another amazing recipe as always, Demeter!! 🙂

    1. Haha… maybe? In the tastiest way possible. 😉 Right?? If they ever become a thing, I’ll just cover my ears. Aw, your poor friends… that totally stinks! Thanks so much, Marina! 🙂

  8. As long as they are skillet-roasted maple cinnamon pecans you can shoot them at me all you want, I’ll just open wide and catch as many of those delicious flying nutty beauties as I can!!. I can’t imagine a better way to start off a friendship really, certainly beats small talk. The coziness factor is just going up and up and up around here. Not only do you have all the toasty nutty spiced flavors (and scents I’m sure!) but these are gift-perfect too! Is Casa de Demeter slowly turning into that candy shop?? While it would be quite a struggle to part with these sticky sweet little guys, they would look so very adorable in gift bags tied up with with a bow. Okay I need to stop imagining now before I started singing Christmas carols. Also skillet = an extra 2000 coolness points. xo

    1. Oh my! You know this is why we’re besties: we can be weird and supportive of each other. And giggle. A LOT. 😉 Lolol on the small talk. Casa de Demeter totally has to become a candy shop soon. It only makes sense! Lol. Thank you for the gift-packaging suggestions. 🙂 Sing those Christmas carols loud and proud! Collecting mah points and totally smiling. xo

  9. As it happens I would LOVE getting these as a Christmas gift  wink, nudge, wink, wink, nudge. And I hope you know that our friendship is such that shooting pecan bits at each other is hardly worth mentioning and basically a given because it’s so completely fine. Btw, I have one of those awesome robot vacuums, so we can totally sick him on those floor-bound pecan pieces. Boom. I’m honestly trying not to lick my screen at this point, holy gravy do these pecans look delicious and these photos are freaking gorgeous! Pinning! Bog hogs, D!

    1. Hehe. A wink, a nudge, a flare in the sky… I may or may not get the hint here. 😉 Lolol. Okay, now I know that I can TRULY count on you–with my shooting pecan bits and all. 😉 You bring the vacuum, I’ll bring the double batch of pecans. We’re about to get bonded, my friend! 😉 Thanks so much, Steph. Bog hogs! xoxo

    1. Yep, you totally could! 😉 I love how you described these– “full of autumn flavors.” 🙂 I’ve got plenty of reason and I’m gonna keep ’em coming. 😉 Thanks Marsha. 🙂

  10. There is no such thing as chocolate-less! I don’t trust the ones who do not like chocolate 😉 ! Anyway, when I’m not eating chocolate :-), I like to munch on nuts, any kind, I just love them. This roasted pecans are super delicious, and will definitely grace our table this year! My favorite food gift idea is cookies. This coming second 🙂 .

    1. Bahaha. Yep, those people always seem sooo suspicious… I kid! 😉 I’m so happy that you’re planning on making this recipe. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. 🙂 Cookies: YES. I completely agree! Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. 🙂

    1. Seriously! You know I can’t resist creating another pecan recipe. 😉 I’ve totally got to sprinkle these onto a salad now. Thanks Karen! 🙂

  11. Listen up, Bestie. Chocolate-less will never be a thing… and this is coming from a chic with a cocoa allergy, so you know I mean business! 😉 I mean, cocoa-less may be a thing… but chocolate-less. NO. I know you are picking up what I’m putting down, because we already have that fast-forwarded, closer than close, let’s talk spit ALL the food at each other, friendship. <3 Annnnyways, roasted nuts are a MUST during the holidays. And these pecans looks all sorts of pretty and perfect! LOVE that you skillet roasted them!!! Serving these in a mini skillet on the table would be just the cutest thing on planet earth!!! I am loving the coconut sugar, cinnamon and maple combo going on here! Feel free to send me a bag of these as my Christmas gift.. mmmm'kay? Lol. Pinned!! Cheers, my little chocolate covered pecan! xo

    1. Lolol. May it seriously NEVER be a thing! 😉 I SO know you mean business! When we meet up, we shall have spitting on each other as the first item on our to do list. Haha. <3 Oh my gosh, now I NEED a mini skillet! I have you on my list to send these goodies to! Big cheers back to you, my chocolate cherry cupcake. xo

  12. I make spiced mixed nuts every year at Christmas and eat them all through the holiday. I don’t know why I want until then to make them ’cause they are so good. And yours? Looks amazing! I’m a sucker for anything in a skillet so ya know I’m lovin’ these. These would be perfect for gifting too! Pinned, of course. Hope you have a great week! xoxo

    1. Oh wow… I can totally just imagine how amazing your spiced mixed nuts are, Dawn! Skillet-recipes, ftw! I’m totally gifting these this year, for sure! Thank you for pinning, D. Hope you have an awesome week! xoxo

  13. I have some catching up to do on your site but wow Demeter, how incredibly generous of you to offer ME some of your decadently delicious maple cinnamon pecans! I know I couldn’t have read that wrong – could I? Totally made my Monday as I luuuuuurve getting candied nuts for Christmas – mkay?1 😉 In return, I’ll send you a baggie of assorted GF cookies and all this cold weather (anything below 60 makes my nose hairs crinkle – GAH)!
    Happy Monday to ya – here’s hoping this week is fantabulous!

    1. Haha. You SO did not read that wrong! Come on over for a nice, big batch of these treats. 🙂 Candied nuts are the BEST for the holidays! Okay wow, now I shall eagerly await my bag of GF cookies! Happy Monday my friend. 🙂

  14. Yay for roasted maple cinnamon pecans! I’m all about pecans on their own, so this is just calling my name! Such a great idea to make these in the skillet. I’ve made a similar version, but in the oven. I’ve GOT to try this. I think I would be hooked on this easy snack. Pinned, of course! Hope your week is off to a great start!

    1. Woohoo!! I thought you’d like this one! 🙂 Maple, pecans, cinnamon, where could you go wrong? 🙂 I can’t wait to check yours out! Happy Monday, G! 🙂

    2. I was so excited to see this come up on my Facebook newsfeed. I LOVE pecans, maple and cinnamon!!! I even reposted it and sent it to my daughters. Then I finally read down far enough to see the ingredients. Imagine my dismay, as a person with coconut allergies, to find that two of the six ingredients were coconut sugar and coconut oil! Is there an easy substitution for these items? I am not much of an experimenter.

      1. Hi Carol, try these substitutions: brown sugar instead of coconut sugar, and vegan butter for the coconut oil. I hope you and your daughters get to try this and just love it. 🙂
