  • If you are running short on time in the kitchen, you’ll love this recipe because it only takes 10 minutes.
  • Great healthy snack to make ahead and enjoy later.

Ingredient Notes

  • Raw pecans. Raw pecans are best in this recipe since you’re going to be roasting them anyway. Store-bought roasted nuts are usually salted as well, so they aren’t the best fit for this recipe. Pecans are a great source of vitamins and minerals.
  • Raw honey. The raw honey should not be swapped out for regular honey if at all possible. Raw honey is the best way to achieve the desired level of moisture and crunch in this recipe.
  • Hemp hearts. Hemp hearts are smooth, mildly nutty, and packed with a good amount of protein.
  • Try substituting peacans for your favorite nut; walnuts would make a great choice.

How To make It

1. In the mixing bowl add pecans and honey, Stir to combine and make sure all pecans are well coated.

2. Roast them for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven.

3. Cool and store in the air-tight container.

Serving Tip

These pecans are an excellent way to give a pop of flavor to your salads, homemade granola, with yogurt or ice cream. You can also enjoy them sprinkled on grains like kasha (buckwheat groats) or quinoa. Of course, they’re great on their own, too!
