I love making candied nuts during the holiday season. There’s something very festive about them and they are satisfyingly sweet and filling at the same time. Lately I’ve been on a candied pecans kick. They’re super easy to make and my husband loves them.
You could jazz up this recipe with some spices like cinnamon and cayenne (I think both together would be delicious), however I’ve been enjoying the simplicity of merely sweetening the nuts lately. These nuts make one delicious gluten free snack –and there is nothing like it in my gluten free cookbook, so enjoy it here for the taking!
2 cups pecans
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons yacon syrup
½ tsp celtic sea salt
- Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl
- Place in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish
- Bake at 350° for 15 minutes
- Cool and serve
