Sweet and spicy pecans with maple syrup are a salty-sweet holiday favorite!
Preheat oven to 300. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine maple syrup, butter and seasonings through allspice. Add pecans and stir until they are well coated.
Spread pecans in an even layer on prepared baking sheet.
Bake at 300 for 20-25 minutes, stirring once, until well browned. Be careful they don’t burn.
Let cool on baking sheet and enjoy!
I use butter but you can sub olive oil if you prefer (or if you want them to be vegan).
I think these have the perfect amount of cayenne to get just a background hint of spicy, but feel free to adjust the amount to suit your tastes.
These pecans will keep for at least 2-3 weeks, stored in an air-tight container at room temperature.
