Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups raw pecan halves
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour sifted
  • 1 cup semi-sweet mini chips see NOTES
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grab a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Set aside and line an 8x12 cake pan with parchment paper or see NOTES above for instructions to use a disposable foil brownie/cake pan (my mom's preferred method).
  2. 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.)

  7. Stir in mini chips and pure vanilla extract.

  8. Pour batter into baking pan and gently tap pan against counter 1 to 2x to get out any air bubbles.

  9. 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!
