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.

The full recipe for the Keto Pecan Brittles below:
Keto Pecan Brittles
- 1 1/4 Cup Raw Pecans or toasted
- 1/2 Cup Granulated Erythritol
- 1/4 Cup Butter Salted
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, gradually stir in the granulated erythritol. Cook for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and pecans. Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and use a rubber spatula to spread the mixture in an even layer
- Let cool at room temperature and then transfer to the refrigerator for 1 hour before cutting into pieces and serving.
What size baking pan is recommended?
Any average size pan works like a 9×13 or a baking sheet pan
Bonni Montgomery says
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.
Thanks for the great tips, Bonni. I appreciate the feedback. I am sure it will be helpful for others.
Was delicious but I don’t think I had enough butter mixture. Mine was like all pecans and like no butter?? Any tips?
What kind of butter did you use? That’s odd
Nicole Normand says
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?
Hi Vanessa. What brand erythritol did you use? Was it more in a powder form or granular form?
Nicole Normand says
Can I double the ingredients to make more? And can I use the pyure confectioners sugar .
Yes you can use confectioners sugar
What is baking sugar? I haven’t made them yet but they look great. A
The sugar substitute that’s specifically made for baking, not the kind you add to your drinks.
How many servings is in this recipe?
Hi Marcy! It makes about 12 pieces
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!
Awe. hope it works. Make sure you are using the baking sugar substitute
Easy to make and it’s tasty. I just found the baking sheet to be to large. Next time I’ll try a smaller pan.
Omg, this is so yummy!
If for some reason this doesn’t get eaten in the first day haha, how long does it last in the fridge? Also, can it be frozen?
Can you use other sugar free sugars instead of the eysteyal
any other sugar substitutes you have handy will work. There are many.
Looks delicious. Could I substitute coconut oil for the butter for dairy free or would it not work out?
yes, you can!
