Agave-Glazed Pecans Recipe

Find Recipes invites you to try Agave-Glazed Pecans Recipe

A delicious party munchie, these crunchy pecans also make a nice hostess gift—place them in a clear bag or jar and tie with a ribbon. Look for agave nectar in natural food stores. If unavailable, brown rice syrup or pure maple syrup may be used instead.

1⁄3 cup agave nectar
1 1⁄2 tablespoons vegan margarine
1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups pecan halves

In a medium skillet, combine the agave nectar, margarine, cinnamon, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the mixture turns an amber color and thickens. Add the vanilla and the pecans, stirring gently until the nuts are coated with the glaze. Quickly transfer the nuts to a nonstick baking sheet and spread in a single layer to cool completely before serving. These are best eaten on the day they are made but, once cooled, they can be covered and stored at room temperature for 2 to 3 days.
