  • 2 cups Pecan
  • ½ cup Coconut Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
  • ¼ tsp Dry Ginger Powder
  • Salt a pinch
  • 1.5 tbsp Water


  • Heat a pan and in this add in 2 cups of Pecans and start toasting in a low flame without burning them. It takes around 5 mins in low flame.
  • Next to this add in the ½ cup of Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • Also add in 2 tbsp of Maple Syrup
  • Add the spices as well. I am adding ginger powder, Cinnamon powder, and a pinch of salt.
  • Also add in 1.5tbsp of water. Combine everything and cook on a low flame. The sugar will start to melt and start caramelizing.
  • Combine everything together, so that the pecans are covered with caramel.
  • When the mixture starts to thicken switch off the flame
  • Transfer everything to a tray lined with parchment paper and let it cool completely. If there are any pecans sticking together you can separate them at this stage. Once they cooled, Candied pecans are ready to munch on. Transfer them to a sterilized jar and store them in the refrigerator.
