Fall is in a matter of days and the pumpkin spice has already been broken out. Apple spice Oreos are back on shelves and pecans have fallen off the trees.

A long time ago, if I remember correctly my grandmother loved pecans. I am kidding I knew she did. Ironically one of her last few sentences was her telling my uncle she was looking for a nutcracker.

She would have me, my brothers and cousin cracking pecans for here. Now, we were able to eat them of course she wasn’t cruel. But, what was that bitter tasting brown stuff stuck in the pecan?

I think about the bitter taste every time I eat one.

Keto fall recipes are great, below I will include many others for your viewing!

6 thoughts on “Keto Pecan Pie Muffins (Grain Free, Low Carb, Sugar Free)”

  1. I don’t see how many calories are in each Pecan Muffin. All that was supplied was Fat, Carbs and Protein. How many calories?

  2. I don’t have maple extract. Can I substitute vanilla extract or just leave it out all together without affecting the end result?

  3. I noticed you said that pecans have 4 grams net carbs per ounce, but I googled the nutritional info for them, and there is really only 1.2 grams per ounce. They have 3.9g carbs, but 2.7g fiber. I believe to get net carbs you subtract the fiber, correct?
