These Maple Roasted Pecans are so easy to make and ready in 10 minutes. Made with just 3 ingredients, these candied pecans are sweetened with maple syrup and completely oil-free. Perfect for snacking, topping salads, desserts, or giving as a homemade holiday gift.




  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Toss the pecans, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice into a large mixing bowl. Mix everything together until the pecans are well coated.
  3. Spread the pecans on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. 
  5. Enjoy on top of a salad, your favorite snack, or simply as a snack. Store in an airtight container.


Pecans are considered a whole food and can be very healthy. But, keep in mind, they are fat-bombs and should be enjoyed sparingly as the occasional treat.

Store in an airtight container for up to a month in the fridge or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth try dry roasting pecans. Simply add the pecans to a parchment-lined baking sheet and toast for 5 minutes.

To cook on the stove heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 cup of raw pecans, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, and 1/4 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice to the pan. Stir all the ingredients together and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the syrup has caramelized. Remove from the heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

Serve on top of salads, desserts, or enjoy as a quick snack.
