4 simple words. Maple Citrus Roasted Pecans. Something so simple is ridiculously addictive.  Thank goodness the ingredients are energizing whole foods because sometimes one handful is not enough. Lets go nuts for nuts!

 8 ounces Raw Pecan Halves
 1/4 cup pure Maple Syrup (we prefer Grade B ~ the darker, more flavorful syrup)
 pinch of fine Sea Salt
 1 teaspoon [Orange Extract
 pinch of ground Ginger

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Place nuts in a single layer on a parchment or Silpat lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast until fragrant about 10 minutes. Flip once during with a pair of tongs. Reduce oven heat to 300 degrees F.


In a medium saucepan bring the rest of the ingredients to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn off the heat. Toss roasted pecans in the mixture with a heatproof spatula.


Evenly spread the pecans back onto the lined cookie tray. Be sure they are in a single layer. Bake nuts for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and let the nuts cool before serving.


Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
