These gluten-free Maple Pecan Brownies combine the amazing flavor of maple spiced pecans with fudgy brownies for a sweet treat that everyone will love!
Mix raw pecan halves with 3 T pure maple syrup. Pour maple pecans out onto lined baking sheet and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt. Toss tray in oven and cook 8 to 10 minutes. Remove (leave oven on for brownies) and allow to cool on the tray while you prep the brownies batter. (TIP: These can be made in advance.)
Set up a double boiler and melt unsweetened baking chocolate along with butter. Once melted, remove from heat and set aside.
Stir in mini chips and pure vanilla extract.
Pour batter into baking pan and gently tap pan against counter 1 to 2x to get out any air bubbles.
Grab cooled maple pecans and begin placing pecans on top of batter. Make sure to place them gently so they do not sink or dip down too far into the batter. You can make any design you want!
Place brownies on middle rack and bake 50 to 55 minutes center feels firm to touch.
Remove to a cooling rack and allow brownies to cool (in pan) for at least 1/2 hour before cutting. Once cool, lift parchment paper and transfer brownies to cutting board. Cut into 24 2" x 2" squares and Enjoy!
