This Low Carb Roasted Cinnamon Pecans make the perfect keto snack. Seriously, I didn’t think I could enjoy pecans unless they were in a pie but this recipe proved me wrong.

I’ve been playing with Stevia again and surprisingly to me, it works wonderfully when you need some instant sweetness in a recipe.  I know, you’re like, Stevia tastes nasty. Well, seriously, the only brand I recommend is Protocol Stevia and if you’ve made my recipes, you know how picky I am about taste.

Mr. Bejelly,  head pickey eater of the household, ate half of this before I told him it was made with Stevia.  You should have seen the shocked look on his face.  By the way, I have made this with honey (1/4 cup) and it did taste good, however, the sweetness was much more subtle.

    Why the Protocol Stevia? What is different about it?

      It doens’t have the strange bitter, “yuck” taste I’ve seen in other brands.
