Ahhhhh Fall. Ahhhhh pumpkin. I love it all. I love when I find out making recipes at home is much cheaper than buying them at the grocery store. For some reason nuts are always so expensive when you purchase them in the grocery. I swear you pay $5 for a canister and they are gone in a day! Other pluses about DIYing your own recipes are you get to control the ingredients ( no preservatives or additives you can't pronounce) and you can make different flavors... like... I don't know... PUMPKIN SPICE! Yep, get excited.
1 cup raw pecans ( or any nut of your choice)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt
1.Preheat oven to 325F. In a large bowl combine nuts with maple syrup until nuts are fully coated.
2. Add pumpkin pie spice salt and cinnamon. Mix until nuts are coated with seasoning.
3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.Spread nut mixture and place in oven.
4. Bake for 20 minutes checking the nuts at 15 minutes to prevent burning. Let cool and store in a air tight container.
