It’s summer and my kids are snacking every ten minutes, it seems. Your’s too?
I’m sharing a new favorite two ingredient snack of ours that takes about 5 minutes to make.
If you are getting eaten out of house and home, like me, then I bet you are also looking for a few new snack ideas too? And probably a variation from the packaged kind.
Lately we are loving these candied pecans. I should call them Clean Candied Pecans because they only contain two ingredients which happen to both be natural.
I made these to top a salad on Mother’s Day and my kids went nuts for them (no pun intended). So I’ve been making them ever since.
Here is all you need :
CLEAN CANDIED PECANS
1 bag of pecans
Scant 1 /4 cup of maple syrup
Place nuts in a non-stick pan
Pour maple syrup over pecans (I really just eyeball the amount that I use. A generous drizzle)
Toast pecans and maple syrup over medium heat, stirring often
When pecans become fragrant and appear toasted take them off heat and let them cool on a cookie sheet or foil covered with a non-stick spray.
And, there you have it.
So easy and so good!
Do you have any favorite snack at the moment?
I’m all ears and looking for some good options.
