Most seasonal baked goods call for processed dairy, white sugar and all those things we try our best to avoid over the holidays, but fail –every single year.
This maple pecan glaze isn’t something that will make you feel bad for enjoying: pecans are full of vitamin E and maple syrup is an excellent source of zinc. This is definitely a glaze that you can indulge in guilt-free!

- 82g pure maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
