Maple Pecan Topping

  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup

  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the maple syrup, brown sugar, butter, and salt. Stir continuously as the brown sugar dissolves. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Allow it to simmer for 3-5 minutes until the syrup is smooth. You want to make sure all sugar granules are dissolved. Remove the pan from the stovetop and stir in the pecans. Serve over your warm pumpkin spice pancakes.
