I store mine in a glass container with a lid. I would love to tell you how long they can last in the container but the container is always empty in a few days!

Bourbon baked pecans

  • 2 cups pecans, organic and raw
  • 1/4 cup honey, local
  • 2 teaspoon lecithin, organic soy
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 shot bourbon, any kind you prefer

Bourbon baked pecans

  1. Prepare a large baking with either parchment paper, a sil-pat, or oil, and set aside. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Take a medium saute pan and measure out the honey, stevia, salt and soy. Heat on medium low until all ingredients blend together. The lecithin will still be in tiny spheres and probably won't dissolve. Take the pan off the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before you add the bourbon.
  3. While you are waiting for the pan to cool slighty, place all the pecans in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Pour the shot of bourbon into the pan and stir thoroughly. Pour the entire mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.

There is only one problem with these pecans: you will want to eat all of them in one sitting! Although I have dropped the sugar content in this recipe, it still has calories. These are nutritive calories but calories nonetheless, so try and ration them.

This recipe is super versatile; you can even add vanilla and cinnamon! You can subsitute egg whites for the lecithin. I am using lecithin here because it sticks everything together and it's good for you. Also it's easier! The lecithin spheres may turn dark during baking but does not affect the taste.

They are very easy and are a great snack to serve to guests or just pop into the family lunch sack!

      These look really good. I like the idea of adding some vanilla.
