If you love keto pecan pie then you will love these pecan pie muffins. They are only 3g net carbs per muffin and easier to make than traditional pie!
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!
