Recipe: Sweet and Salty Pecans

There’s something about the combination of sweet and salty that really gets me excited for life. These little pecans with their maple syrup and smoked sea salt crust are a delight for the senses and only take a few minutes to make, perfect for a nibble with a drink or a snack whilst watching a movie.

Makes enough for a lengthy snack sesh

What you need:

  • 100g pecans
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp smoked sea salt

What you do:

  1. Pop your pecans onto a baking sheet in a pile and drizzle over the maple syrup then the cinnamon and smoked sea salt. Give them a good mixing with your hands making sure that each nut is nicely coated then spread them out in a single layer and whack into an oven pre-heated to 180°c.
  2. Bake for 8-10 minutes, tossing half way though and being very careful not to let them burn. Leave to cool and enjoy them as they are or used in other recipes.


These are a great vegan snack as they’re full of protein so fill you up but are a little naughty and sweet too. Trust me though, they’re addictive!
