Candied Pecans

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 15 min


  • 1 1/2 cups pecans (raw and unsalted)
  • 2 T pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp crushed vanilla bean (you can use extract, but I think the crushed vanilla bean adds an extra sweetness that I can never get with the extract.)


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a bowl toss the pecans in maple syrup. If using extract, add that too.
  3. Once the nuts look well coated, spread them out onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle the vanilla bean over the pecans and place in the oven.
  5. Bake for around 15 minutes, stopping halfway through to shake them pecans around a bit. Enjoy!
