Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 30 minutes
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cup pecan halves
  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoon roughly chopped rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 10 ounce goat cheese log
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl combine maple syrup, ground sage and salt. Add in pecan halves and toss to coat. Add in fresh sage and toss again, then pour onto the lined baking sheet.
  3. Spread the pecans into an even layer and roast for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned, tossing them halfway through.
  4. In a food processor, combine pecans, rosemary and garlic powder. Pulse until the pecans resemble large breadcrumbs (like the photo).
  5. Pour pecan mixture onto a plate and place the goat cheese log on top. Roll the cheese in the pecan mixture, pressing it in so it sticks.
  6. In a food processor, combine pecans, honey, oil and cinnamon. Blend on high until the pecans are finely chopped.
  7. Serve in a small bowl on your charcuterie board. Pair with additional cheese, meats and crackers.
