Maple Spiced Pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place pecans and cashews in a single layer onto parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cashews are slightly browned on edges.
  3. Once the nuts are cool, place 1 cup of nuts into food processor until chopped slightly. There will be both chunks and powder-like substance. Set aside.
  4. Heat maple syrup, honey and vanilla oven in a skillet over medium heat until honey becomes liquid, about 3 minutes. 
  5. Add pecans, cashews and processed nut mixture to syrup and honey and stir with a spoon over heat until the nuts are well coated. Add salt, pepper, and cayenne and stir well.
  6. Spread mixture evenly onto parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Let cool. 
  7. Store in jar or container with a secure lid up to one week.
