Ingredients: ghee, pure maple syrup, Himalayan salt, whole vanilla bean, raw pecans, raw honey, ground ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg.
This has got to be the ultimate in holiday decadence! Unlike some other nut butters, because you only break up some of the pecans at the end, you end up with a creamy and crunchy, sweet and delicious butter that will keep in an airtight jar for a few weeks – if you are lucky!
Ingredients: almond flour, salt, coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg, coconut sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, pecans.
This is another version of a healthier pecan pie, but the crust is partly what makes this recipe different. After mixing the ingredients for the crust, you chill the mixture in the freezer to re-set the coconut oil. This results in a flaky, crumbly crust like all the best pecan pies!
