These candied maple pecans have 3 ingredients and only take 5 minutes to make on the stovetop. You’ll love the cinnamon and sweet caramelized syrup!



  • 1 cup raw pecans (unsalted)
  • 3 Tbsp Pure Maple Syrup *
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (heaping)


  1. Add all ingredients to a large skillet over medium heat
  2. Stir until nuts are well coated
  3. Continue stirring until syrup caramelizes (approx. 5 minutes)
  4. Place nuts on parchment paper and allow to cool completely


  • Pure maple syrup is a must in this recipe. The results will be different with maple flavored syrup.
  • Other nuts may be substituted for for pecans (i.e. walnuts)
