Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL)
  • 2 Tbsp (9 g)
    unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 Tbsp (14 g)
    refined coconut oil , melted
  • ¼ tsp
    salt
  • ⅛ tsp
    ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups (198 g)
    raw pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). To a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients, except for the pecans. Mix well.
  2. Then add in the pecans and toss to coat. Transfer to a lined baking tray and spread them out.
  3. Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 7 - 8 minutes, stirring once halfway. The nuts continue to cook even after being taken out of the oven, so be careful not to overcook. The nuts continue to harden as they cool. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. If you prefer a distinct coconut taste, use unrefined coconut oil instead.

Storage

  • Allow to fully cool before storing in an airtight container on the counter for up to 1 week.
  • Store in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Soooo good and super easy!

Love these! I might try to double the caramel mixture next time as I would like a bit more coating on the pecans but they are delicious :)

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Aurora, adding more of the mixture is a lovely idea :)

I made these once earlier this week and again yesterday, and they’re all gone already 😂 They’re so good and so easy to make I’m obsessed!! Both times I made them I had to leave them in the oven for about 10min extra, because after the recommended baking time the coating on the pecans was still wet. I’ll definitely be making these again (and again). I think a jar of these would be a super cute diy holiday gift. Especially for my brother because he keeps eating most of these when I make them 😂 Thanks so much for the amazing recipe! :)

So happy the candied pecans are being enjoyed, Evelyn! Increasing your oven temperature a tad next time may help dry out the pecans quicker if desired. A jar of them is such a lovely idea as well, thank you 🥰

Hi Sadia and PUL Team, I have been following your YT channel and blog for a few years now, but never commented.
I love your simple, easy going and beautiful (!) way of presenting recipes and since I also love to cook it is a great inspiration to try new recipes and add new tweaks.
I made these several times last winter and absolutely loved them! The weather is starting to get chillier again, so this recipe will be on my list again soon.
Thanks for all your recipes and sharing! Best wishes from Germany, Janna

Make these all the time, with various combinations of nuts! Great flavour and easy enough to make!

PUL Team - July 29, 2021, 7:02 p.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying this one, Katie!

Such a great snack! Good enough to give as a gift as well!


Ellie - July 11, 2021, 12:11 a.m.

This is a wonderful sweet snack on the go. This is one of the snacks I take to work for the 3 o’clock munchies to get me through until dinner. I also make a version with a mix of nuts and seeds.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 4:36 a.m.

Thanks a bunch for sharing the review, Ellie, it means so much!


Anna - July 9, 2021, 11:21 a.m.

I can't count how many times I've made this recipe. It's my favorite snack of all time. LOVE it!

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 2:52 p.m.

Such a lovely compliment, Anna, so glad you're enjoying the pecans 😃


Clarissa - June 15, 2021, 5:35 a.m.

These pecans are super delicious! I love the little hint of cinnamon, and they're really great to have with raisins!


Margaret - March 22, 2021, 8:41 a.m.

Amazing!! The perfect balance between salty and sweet! This might not make it through game night tonight 😂
