Ingredients

2 tablespoons coconut sugar

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons coconut oil

2 cups unsalted pecan halves

Preparation

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together coconut sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt.

In a large, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, add coconut oil and sugar mixture. Stir until melted and smooth.

Add pecans and increase heat to medium, stirring until pecans are thoroughly coated. Allow pecans to soak in the sugar mixture, stirring only occasionally. Watch the pecans closely, being careful not to burn them. Stir until the sugar mixture is almost completely soaked up and the pecans are sticky like taffy. This will take about 3-5 minutes.

Pour pecans onto the prepared baking sheet, creating an even layer. Set baking sheet on a cooling rack. Allow to cool for 1 hour. Enjoy!
