Candied Pecans

  • 1.5 cups pecans
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1.5 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. To cook the candied pecans, heat the over to 350 F. Add the pecans, coconut sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, maple syrup and sea salt to a large mixing bowl and toss everything together until the pecans are coated.

  6. Set the crock pot on low for about 6 hours. Check it periodically.
  7. Serve the oatmeal topped with candied pecans and any other toppings of choice such as freshly sliced apple, shredded coconut, hemp hearts etc.
