Sticky Candied Pecans

Satisfy your sweet tooth with these Sticky Candied Pecans. Only 4 ingredients. No sugar or weird sugar substitutes. Your whole family will be addicted (in a very good way).
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Servings: 16 servings


  • 1 lb pecan halves
  • 4 tablespoons ghee, Regular butter also works great.
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Optional: additional 2 tablespoons of honey to drizzle after baking


    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • Add your ghee (or butter) and honey to a small pot on the stove. Melt over low or medium-low heat.
    • Stir. Add the cinnamon. Stir again until well combined. Remove from heat.
    • Place your pecan halves in a large bowl. Pour the syrup mixture over your pecans. Stir until well coated. (I don't recommend trying to mix them up on the sheet pan. I find that the pecans don't get very well covered that way and you end up wasting a lot of the syrup.)
    • Spread the coated pecans in a single layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
    • Bake for 15 minutes.
    • Stir the pecans. You can add an extra drizzle of honey if you want them super sweet.) Let them continue to sit on the baking sheet until cool. They'll get less sticky as they cool.
    • Gobble them all up! Woops, I mean serve. Serve them to others and eat some too. But not all of them. I guess that would be rude. (No judgment if you do that.)
