Keto Toasted Coconut Pecans

You’ve got to love the flavors of fall. The weather changes and people go from the bright summer flavors of watermelon, barbecues, and salads to hearty stews, pumpkin spice everything, and soul warming beverages. Cinnamon Maple Toasted Coconut Pecans are one of those fall treats that you can’t do without. Pair these pecans with Killer Whey! Keto Ice Cream and now you have one of the best fall desserts.

Who doesn’t love a low carb/keto crunchy topping for ice cream? These pecans are seriously amazing. And they’re super simple to make. They make a delicious snack on their own as well.

 

To make these low carb keto cinnamon maple toasted coconut pecans, you will need:

  • Whole Pecans

  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

  • Cinnamon

  • Real Maple Syrup

  • Vanilla

  • Egg Whites

  • Salt

Once you have your ingredients assembled, you whisk the eggs until frothy then add in everything except the pecans and coconut. Fold in the pecans and coconut last. Then place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Recommend that you line your baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil to make cleanup simple. This recipe is seriously so easy!

If you want to lower the carbs in the recipe, you can substitute 1-2 tablespoons of erythritol for the maple syrup. But you will lose out on that subtle maple flavor. Or if you want the pecans to be sweeter, you can use both the maple syrup and erythritol. But once you put these cinnamon maple toasted coconut pecans on top of Killer Whey! Keto Ice Cream, you don’t really need to have any extra sweetness. They are so good with the chocolate keto ice cream!

Let us know if you make these toasted coconut pecans and use them as a topping for Killer Whey! ice cream!
