Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add pecan pieces followed by cinnamon, salt and maple syrup to a mixing bowl.
Mix using a silicone spatula until ingredients are well-combined.
Pour nut mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and use the silicone spatula to spread the nuts out evenly in a single layer on the pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
After removing from oven, place the sheet on a heat safe surface. Carefully give the nuts a quick stir with the spatula. To ensure safety, I usually wear my oven mitts when doing so to prevent burns as you will most likely have to hold onto the pan with one hand while stirring with the other.
Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
Transfer nuts to a serving bowl or storage container. The nuts will be sticky and some will have to be “lifted” from the paper with the spatula.
Nuts can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature.*I use pecan pieces instead of halves because I find everything sticks to them better and is more evenly distributed. You can cut pecan halves into pieces by chopping them in half or thirds lengthwise or diagonally.The nutrition information shown is an estimate provided by an online nutrition calculator.
