Maple Roasted Pecans

Paleo Toasted Maple Pecans

  • Author: Tina Turbin


A delicious healthy treat that is quick and easy to make. It can be served with my lamb, over a spinach salad, on my muffins or as a snack while reading or watching a show. Kids love these as a snack!


  • ¾ cup pecans (whole or pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon grass-fed butter or coconut oil
  • 34 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2 pinches of salt


  1. Preheat your skillet on medium heat.
  2. Add the pecans and lower the temperature.
  3. Toss constantly until they start to lightly crisp and turn a darker brown.
  4. Remove and cool slightly.
  5. Add butter or oil to skillet with warm nuts and toss to coat all.
  6. Turn heat to medium.
  7. Add 3 tablespoons maple syrup and stir with a heat-approved plastic or metal tipped spoon.
  8. Maple syrup will start to bubble.
  9. Turn heat down to low.
  10. Do not allow to burn or cook at too high a temperature.
  11. Keep stirring.
  12. Maple syrup will appear to boil “away”, but it is actually caramelizing.
  13. You can add the additional 1 tablespoon maple syrup if you prefer a more heavily coated nut.
  14. Remove once the maple syrup is nearly gone and before any burning occurs.
  15. Add the pinches of salt while maple is still hot and stir once again.
  16. Let sit a bit or serve! Great at warm, room temperature or chilled.
  17. Enjoy!


Add more salt if you prefer a more sweet and salty version.
These will store in an airtight container very well.
