Addictive Spicy Pecans
2 Tbl Maple Syrup
1 tsp Thai Curry Paste
1 tsp Sriracha
1 tsp Red Chili Flakes
¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp salt
2 cups raw pecans
Preheat oven to 325F.
Mix all ingredients except the pecans.
Toss in the pecans.
Spread evenly on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat/parchment paper/foil.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, tossing the pecans around about halfway through.
Cool completely and enjoy.
If using sugar-free maple syrup, definitely go the full 20 minutes. Real sugar burns more quickly than artificial sweeteners.
The spiciness level here is medium-high. Find a good balance of cayenne/chili flakes, but try to keep the wet ingredient amounts the same for texture consistency.
This is unfortunately not as delicious when substituting pecans for almonds. There is a big texture difference that makes them not so satisfying, but feel free to try other nuts.
