Maple Glazed Pecan Slices

I spent my morning coming up with these. I wanted something sweet for the family without any grains or sugars but plenty of energy giving proteins. These were the result.

Makes 8-10



  • Base –


  • 150g cashews, blitzed


  • 1 1/2tbsp honey


  • 1 1/2tbsp coconut oil

    Middle –


  • 200g dates, soaked


  • 50g pecans


  • 50g almonds


  • 50g cranberries


  • 20g dark chocolate


  • 1tbsp maple syrup



  • 50g pecans


  • 50ml maple syrup


  • pinch of salt


  1. It looks like there’s a lot to do here, but honestly, these come together so easily, with no baking needed. Firstly make your base – Blitz the cashews to a coarse flour, stir in the honey and coconut oil and press into a lined brownie tin. Pop in the fridge to set.
  2. Now prepare your top – Put the pecans, honey and maple on a dry pan and leave to bubble and caramelize, stirring occasionally. Takes about two to three minutes. Tip onto greaseproof paper and leave to cool.
  3. Now for the middle – Soak the dates in boiling water. Meanwhile, blitz your pecans, almonds and cranberries until well chopped. Chop the dark chocolate into little pieces and stir into the nut mix with the maple. Drain and mash the dates and stir into the rest of the filling. Spoon onto your base biscuit, leaving it brownie thick. Push the candied pecans into the surface and put the whole thing into the fridge to set for a few hours.
  4. Then slice and enjoy. It should keep in an air tight container in the fridge for a week.
