Is maple pecan latte the new pumpkin spice?
Ever since Starbucks announced its latest flavor, that question has been making the rounds.
Personally, much as I love pumpkin spice and salted caramel, I have to admit I prefer maple pecan to either of them. I’ve loved both maple syrup and pecans since, well, forever.
So when I first spotted the maple pecan latte poster in my local Starbucks, I just stood there slack-jawed. I was in the line of traffic and had to apologize to a woman who was trying to leave the store with her drink. And when I pointed out the poster, she got excited, too.
In honor of the strong possibility that they may just become the next big trend, I’ve rounded up a couple dozen maple pecan recipes. But not just for maple pecan latte.
Below you’ll find 33 maple pecan recipes that combine these two great flavors in breakfast bowls, muffins, waffles, scones, salads, chicken, seafood, pork, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, pies, cupcakes, donuts, frosting, and more.
