Smoky Maple & Brown Sugar Candied Pecans (Vegan)


My sweet & smoky almonds were a huge hit last week, so I decided to experiment with a little more smokiness. I've also had a bottle of good quality maple syrup sitting on my counter (thanks for the gift AD!), so I used the syrup to help the sugar-spice mixture stick to the nuts.

I was really happy with how these turned out, certainly more candied than the last time I made the attempt (although glazed nuts are still great too!). I love the sweet, smoky, salt combination here. Let me know what you think!

Note: This is one of those times that since you want the maple flavor to shine, you should spend the money on a good quality maple syrup and not the fake, corn syrup reinforced pancake syrup.

this would probably be significantly more expensive if you were to factor in the cost of "good quality" maple syrup. you should probably factor that in for someone who wanted to make this. just a thought:)

Great point--a good bottle of maple syrup would cost around 7.00 or so, and you'd need 1/5ish of a bottle (give or take) for this recipe. Note: Costco and other stores as such often have great quality maple syrup that is much less costly per ounce.
