- 1 cup pecan halves
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup powdered erythritol (or keto-friendly sweetener of choice)
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
- Spread the pecan halves evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Toast them in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, or until they become fragrant and slightly golden. Keep a close eye on them to prevent burning. Once toasted, remove them from the oven and set them aside to cool.
- In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat. Add the powdered erythritol, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir well until the sweetener dissolves and the mixture is smooth.
- Increase the heat to medium and bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Let it cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly and reaches a caramel-like consistency.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and quickly stir in the toasted pecans, ensuring they are well coated in the caramel mixture.
- Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, drop spoonfuls of the pecan mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Allow them to cool and harden at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- Once the pralines have cooled and solidified, transfer them to an airtight container for storage.
- Enjoy these keto pralines as a delicious treat or a sweet ending to a meal. They can also be given as a thoughtful homemade gift to your fellow keto enthusiasts.
