This rich, maple glaze is the perfect complement to your seasonal baked goods.
Using only a handful of ingredients, this glaze is naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and gets its creamy texture from heart-healthy pecans.
Did you know that pure maple syrup is an excellent source of manganese, and a good source of zinc? Look for “Grade B” maple syrup, which is the less refined, and therefore more nutrient-rich. Paired with pecans, which are loaded with vitamin E and plant sterols, this is a sweet treat you can feel good about indulging in, without any of the processed dairy or sugars that most holiday glazes call for.
Enjoy over your favorite bundt cake, pumpkin bars, or pancakes for a special Fall treat!
