These Roasted  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 picky 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.

Common Questions about Pecans

Should you roast pecans before baking? Yes, you should.  Roasted pecans have a more developed flavor than raw pecans and roasting them will improve your dish.

How long do roasted pecans last? They will last for 1 month in an airtight container in your fridge or 3 months in the freezer. 

Can you eat raw pecans? Yes, you can.  In my humble opinion, the flavor is just gross though.  Also, some people might find it hard to digest so roasting is the way to go.
