I made these sweet pecans just for Bob.  Whenever we have a salad in a restaurants he always enjoys them sprinkled with nuts.  It never dawned on me that they were glazed and that is why he liked them so much.  Well, shoot, I can glaze them too!  Not to mention keeping them raw and healthier.  Move over “restaurant glazed nuts”…there is a new nut in town!  lol


  • 2 cups raw pecans, soaked 
  • 2 Tbsp yacon syrup**
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • Dash of sea salt


  1. Sweetener:  I prefer yacon for this recipe because it is raw and has a molasses flavor but you could use honey or agave as well.
  2. Soak pecans overnight. Drain and rinse.
  3. Spread the pecans on a dry towel and blot them dry before placing in a bowl.
  4. Combine the remaining ingredients along with the pecans and stir until the pecans are well coated.
  5. Spread on the non-stick dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 105 degree for  12-20 hours or until dry.  If you don’t have non-stick sheets you can use parchment paper.  Don’t use wax paper.
  6. Store in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.

      lol, We are a home of the mighty tasting spoons. We use both ends too. I bet that they are smelling wonderful in the dehydrator too. I can almost smell it from here. :) Oh wait, that’s my machine. I have two of them loaded with some new treats and they are competing with aromas. hehe Have a blessed evening. amie sue
