Maple Pecan Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients for 6 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 1 cup chopped pecans, raw
  • spray olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 1/2 lb (~675g or 24oz) raw Brussel sprouts
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey or agave)
  • sea salt flakes to taste


Step 1

Set oven to 350F.

Step 2

Place pecans on a baking tray lined with parchment and spray with a little oil. Dust with sea salt. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown (be careful not to burn). Allow them to cool once baked.

Step 3

Bring a pot of water to boil and add Brussels sprouts. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until they turn a vibrant green color. Upon piercing with a fork they should be crisp yet tender. Immediately place the Brussels sprouts in a bowl of ice water so they stop cooking AND retain their brilliant green color. Drain the bowl and pat them dry. Slice them in half. Again, it’s really important you pat the pieces dry.

Step 4

Set a nonstick skillet on HIGH heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the oil and the Brussels sprouts. Let the halves sear on one side, then shake the skillet to toss them. Repeat this until the outside is brown and the edges are crispy.

Step 5
  1. Add in the toasted pecans, followed by the syrup.  Toss the ingredients together in the pan for about 45 seconds, then immediately place in a bowl so they can cool and get somewhat sticky.  If desired, sprinkle on some sea salt.

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
