Paleo Maple-Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Paleo Brussels Sprouts, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Dried CranberriesI love Brussels sprouts — always and in all ways — but I have always been especially partial to giving them a little sweetness, and caramelizing them with some pure maple syrup is a great way to do that. Throw in some dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds to give this some added texture and flavor, and you have fail-safe side dish. Yum.

These sprouts are great on their own, but I also often throw these over some arugula or spinach dressed with fresh lemon juice and crushed black pepper to make a yummy salad. You can also substitute the pumpkin seeds out for walnuts, pecans or  hazelnuts.
