Candied Pecans
  • 2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil (I use Nutiva)
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (This is a good brand)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups raw pecans
  1. Melt coconut oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add maple syrup, vanilla and salt and stir well.
  2. When mixture is bubbling, add pecans.
  3. Stir pecans well, so that they're completely coated in the maple syrup mixture. Cook and stir constantly for about 5 minutes, being careful so that they don't burn.
  4. Take the pan off the heat and transfer the pecans onto a piece of wax paper or parchment paper to cool.
  5. Serve when cool. Hide the extras in an airtight container so that you don't eat them all in one sitting. :)
