Who is ready for some spring fun!!!!!! Get in on the contest by linking up below!

I admit I’m a pumpkin fanatic. However, while I love fall and all the amazingly yummy pumpkin food that comes with the season, I really prefer the warm weather of spring and summer.

So why not have fall comfort food in the spring?

One of my fav fall treats is pumpkin spiced pecans.

I LOVE everything pumpkin. Oh, yeah. I already said that.

These are sweet and under all the sugar full of protein.

Does that count as healthy?

I used my normal candied almond recipe but altered it slightly to include the pumpkin spice. It really is a simply thing to make.

  1. that sund good grand used to make pumpkin for all holiday dad would tell grand make me some pies dad would get cherry and mince meat and one we call posin berry

  2. I also love all thing pumpkin any time of the year. My favorite is pumpkin whoopie pies with maple cream filling.

  3. I have never seen this recipe before. Being from the South I love pecans and roast them all the time, but I am sure I will like these. The next time I roast some pecans I will add the pumpkin spice and maple syrup. Thanks for participating in this hop. I learn so much and find some great authors and books.

  6. Thanks for the recipe! I love everything pumpkin too (except maybe ice cream–tried it once and it wasn’t that great). I’m first in line when Dunkin’ brings out the pumpkin muffin in the fall, though!!! 🙂
