Spiced Maple Glazed Pecans

These spiced maple glazed pecans are so addicting! I love snacking on these and the best part is – there is no added sugar. All you need is maple syrup, salt, and your favorite spices!

For this recipe, I’m using one of my favorite spice combinations – chipotle powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and white pepper. You can completely skip the spices or substitute them with any spices you like. Some other spices that would work include cumin, cinnamon, chili powder,

They’re crunchy, sweet, salty, a little spicy and the perfect snack to have around the house. Sometimes I’ll eat these pecans with ice cream or yogurt or use it as a topping for my French tuiles recipe, or simply eat it as is. I always make a big batch of these because they go quick!
