This quick recipes satisfies the sweet taste that I love plus it has all of the benefits of eating healthy nuts. Pecans are a member of the hickory family so they have their own unique flavor. They provide healthy fats and dietary fiber. They are a good source of protein and several B vitamins as well as many micronutrients such as zinc and magnesium. Because this recipe adds sugar to the nuts, it is best to keep your intake to just a handful for a serving. I love to grab a handful as a way to deter hunger pains for a little longer but not eat too much.
- Over medium-high heat, melt butter.
