Toasted Maple Cinnamon Pecans {Paleo, Vegan}

A little sweet and a little salty, these maple cinnamon pecans are a staple in our house.  Served on their own or as part of a favorite snack mix, they are a protein-packed healthy snack that you will love.  They also add a delicious crunch to my favorite Pear and Pecan Spinach Salad.
