Pumpkin Spice Pecans [vegan, oil-free, gluten-free]


  • Author: Remy
  • Total Time: ~30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Description

A delicious, fall inspired twist on candied nuts made healthy. Easy, vegan and free of oil, gluten and refined sugars.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup of pecan halves (raw* or toasted)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • 1/41/2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1/8  tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 315 degrees farenheit.
  2. Combine your coconut sugar, pumpkin spice and salt in a small bowl and whisk.
  3. Place pecans in a bowl and add maple syrup and dry ingredients to the bowl.
  4. Toss pecans using a spatula or your hands until all the nuts are evenly coated in the mixture.
  5. Transfer the pecans onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat and spread evenly so that no nut is overlapping.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then turn nuts over and return to the oven to bake for an additional 5-8 minutes. The glaze on the nuts should start to bubble and caramelize and brown a little bit before you flip them.
  7. Remove nuts from the oven and allow to cool completely before consuming or storing–ideally an hour at least. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

*If using raw pecans, I highly recommend you toast them in the oven for a few minutes before making this recipe as it will result in a better crunch and will store for longer.
