Keto Pecan Pralines
Keto Pecan Pralines
Keto Pecan Pralines are my absolute favorite keto candy. It’s rich, sweet, and as Southern as can be. Best of all, these keto sweets have only 1 net carb. I was actually shocked at how good these were. Mostly, because I actually didn’t set out intending to make Keto Pecan Pralines in the first place. Either way, these Keto Pralines are super delicious and extremely easy to make. Give them a try and you won’t be disappointed.
Pecan Pralines and Charleston, SC
Charleston, SC is one of my favorite cities. It’s beautiful, historic and a major culinary hub for the South East. If you have a chance to go, don’t pass it up. Someday, I might even move there.
There are 3 main foods I associate with the Holy City: she-crab soup, shrimp and grits, and pralines. Some would argue beene wafers too, but I think they’re overrated.
Anyone who has ever been to the Charleston Market has smelled the alluring aroma of fresh pralines wafting through the air. On numerous occasions, I have purchased boxes of pralines, spending more than is reasonable for a box of candy. I’ve tried to make them a few times at home before going low carb. They never turned out all that great and paled in comparison to the real deal on Market Street.
Stumbling over Keto Pralines
As I said before, I didn’t intend to make keto pralines. This all started with having a bag of pecans and wondering what would happen if I put them in the caramel sauce. I figured they would just be caramel candied pecans. Those would be great. I shook some cinnamon over the pecans and baked them for a few minutes before adding them to the bubbling caramel. What resulted was beyond my expectations. Instead of just tasting like pecans in caramel, the result very closely mimicked the taste of a Charleston pecan praline. This unexpected delight was better than Christmas for me. My favorite non-keto candy was now also my favorite keto candy.
Special Recipe Instructions
There are no special recipe instructions. Keto Pecan Pralines are extremely easy to make. You could, however, play with adding some other flavors to the mix. Adding some bourbon would be tasty. A maple extract might also be good. The recipe is amazing on its own, but that’s no reason for you not to play with it! If you do, let me know how it turns out in the comments below.
