Something new for the gorp bag!
|3||c||unsalted pecan halves|
For those who like a little salt, add a few shakes of kosher or sea salt when coating with maple syrup - or when the hot nuts come out of the oven.
Buy your nuts at Costco or similar to save money. Store the big bags in a tightly sealed container in your refrigerator or freezer till time to spice them up!
Preheat your oven to 350. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl mix the maple syrup and spices together. Add in the pecans and stir until well coated. Spread the pecans on the prepared pan in a single layer. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, until toasted and most of the syrup is absorbed.
Let cool, then shake the nuts off of the paper. Store in a tightly sealed freezer bag till trail time - and use up within a couple weeks.
