I’m currently trying to do the whole 30 challenge. The rules are you can’t eat any grains, sugars or basically any starches. It is inherently gluten-free and Paleo but you can’t have maple syrup, honey or any type of sweetener. I have been trying to come up with a new snack ideas. This one came out great!!
2 cups whole pecans
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Start by melting the coconut oil in the microwave in a small bowl. Place the pecans in a large bowl, add the melted coconut butter and toss. Add the cinnamon and continue to toss gently. Spread the pecans out on a foiled baking sheet. Bake at 250° for about 25-30 minutes. Toasting the nuts in the oil will help them caramelize and bring out some sweetness. Allow the nuts to cool and then enjoy.
