These Sugar Free Cinnamon Maple Roasted Pecans are sweet, spiced and salty.
They make a great addition to salads, or trail mixes. Use them to top mashed yams or mix them in with roasted butternut squash. They are a wonderful crunchy toasted topping for ice cream, cakes or pies. Or just grab a handful and have a little snack!
Pecans are one of the best choices of nuts to eat.
Pecans contain a generous amount of vitamins and minerals and they are high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates. This makes them suitable for low-carb and ketogenic diets.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Spread the pecans on a baking sheet and bake them for 9-10 minutes. They will burn quickly after they start to brown so keep a good eye on them.
In a small bowl mix the maple flavor and the stevia together.
Remove the nuts from the oven and let them cool for 2 minutes. Then transfer them to a bowl and spoon the maple mixture over them a little at a time while stirring.
Once the nuts are well coated sprinkle them with the salt and cinnamon. Stir and shake the bowl to coat the nuts evenly.
Let the nuts cool completely before serving.
