Keto Pecan Snacks
Pecans are high in fiber, healthy fat, and protein. They are the perfect nuts to use in your keto baking or cooking. The most popular way to bake with them is to make pecan pie.
If that’s your favorite type of pie, then try this keto pecan pie cheesecake. It’s irresistible.
Serve these keto spiced pecans at a party with some keto chocolate bark with pecans. There is nothing better than the combination of sweet and salty flavors.
Since pecans have so much fat and protein in them, they will keep you satiated between meals.
I usually suggest people use fresh herbs whenever possible. In this recipe, it’s actually better to use dried herbs. You can use fresh rosemary, sage, and thyme, but I suggest chopping them up really well before you add them to the nuts.
They need to be chopped up so that the spices mix in really well with all of the pecans.
Rosemary pecans also make a thoughtful DIY food gift. You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. These are naturally gluten-free, so almost anyone can enjoy them without worrying about food sensitivities.
