  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans
  • 2-3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, olive oil or ghee (for pan, *see recipe notes)
  • pinch sea salt (to taste)


  1. Preheat your cast iron skillet over medium-low heat.

  2. Add the maple syrup, pecans and salt to the pan.  Using a spoon, stir to coat the pecans with the maple syrup.

  3. Turn off heat, and place pecans on a baking sheet or plate with parchment paper (or wax paper).  Let cool.  Store in airtight container.  Should last several weeks.

Recipe Notes

*I often spray my cast iron skillet with coconut oil spray and that is enough to coat the pan evenly and well.
