Maple-Roasted Candied Pecans made in just 15 minutes in the Oven with only 3 ingredients! Oil-free, Vegan and totally foolproof! The BEST recipe that comes out perfect every time!
Preheat oven to 350F
Place pecans on a parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer. Place on the middle rack for 10-14 minutes, mixing halfway through. Toss at 7 minutes, and check at 10 minutes, as all ovens are different. You want the nuts to toast a bit, and the maple syrup to carmelize (so it hardens when cooled) so I try to go to the full 14 minutes.
Remove from oven. Let cool completely. Break apart. Store in jar, or bowl on the counter for easy snacking.
