Welcome to my keto praline recipe article! As someone who follows a keto diet, I am always on the lookout for delicious low-carb desserts. Pralines are a classic Southern treat that I have always loved, but traditional praline recipes are loaded with sugar and carbs. That’s why I decided to create a keto-friendly version of this sweet treat. In this article, I will be sharing my recipe for keto pralines, as well as some tips and tricks for making them just right.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread the pecan halves out on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until fragrant.
  3. Line a second baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and heavy cream together.

Tips

Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect keto pralines:

1. Use powdered sweetener: Granulated sweeteners don’t dissolve as well as powdered sweeteners, which can result in a grainy texture.

2. Don’t overcook the mixture: If you cook the mixture for too long, it can become hard and difficult to work with.

3. Use a cookie scoop: A cookie scoop can help you make evenly sized pralines.

With these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to make delicious keto pralines that everyone will love.
