Healthy Maple Sweetened Chili Pecans

Healthy Maple Sweetened Chili Pecans

With just a few tablespoons maple syrup these pecans are just slightly sweet and perfectly spiced for snacking, parties, salad toppings and gift-giving!




  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a medium sized, rimmed baking sheet with parchment or silicone liner.
  2. Toss all the ingredients in a large bowl, mixing well to coat all the nuts evenly.
  3. Lay coated pecans in a single layer on prepared pan.
  4. Bake 5 minutes, stir nuts well and bake for another 5-8 minutes until nuts are browned and caramelized (watch closely to avoid burning).
  5. Remove from oven and let cool completely on pan.**
  6. Break apart and store in an airtight container.


*Going over this amount may cause the nuts to remain sticky after cooling, so measure carefully.
**Do not let them sit out for longer than necessary -they have become sticky for me in the past from the humidity when I forgot about them cooling (as in hours). They will stay nice and glazed if you place them in a container as soon as they are completely cooled.
