Servings 2 pint jars


  • 4 cups pecans
  • 4 tsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with unbleached parchment paper.
  • Mix all of the pecans, melted coconut oil, salt, and maple syrup together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Lay out your nuts on two baking sheets. For this amount, this gives them plenty of room to breath and allows them to move around nicely when you shake the pans.
  • Bake the nuts for 40 minutes (45 for darker nuts), shaking the baking sheets or turning the nuts with a spatula once or twice.
  • Allow 10 minutes or so (if you can wait) for them to cool. Allow to cool fully before storing. I used pint mason jars to store mine (filled 2 jars). Enjoy!
