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:
- 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.
- 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!
