Keto Pecan Brittles Recipe

What a perfect treat to make around the holidays. These Keto Pecan Brittles are a great hit in our house and the kids love them. Well except for Marc. He is the picky eater around here and I have given up on him trying new things long ago!

So, I would like to mention that I didn’t toast the pecans for this particular Keto Pecan Brittles recipe. But you can do so if you like. It will make it much nuttier and the flavor will be much more intense. They are delicious either way you go but you will find that you might like one over the other.

    I have used erythritol brown sugar and also lakanto monk fruit as it has a ‘mapely’ flavor and sometimes a combo of both & both turned out well. I also toast my pecans first. Be sure you let the sweetener and sugar cook long enough to thicken a bit and become frothy before you add pecans. I don’t usually have to refrigerate it.

        Mine too was all pecans and not much butter. It was still great and I ended up getting all the yummy butter mixture with my spoon and fingers… Butter was my regular kind at the store. Unsalted so I added a pinch of Himalayan salt.

        Tried it and it was great while it wasn’t completely cooled – then the erythritol started to crystalize. Any tips to prevent that from happening?

    I don’t think I let the butter and sugar cook long enough. My first attempt came out gritty. O well i’ll try again till I get it right!
