Low carb biscotti meets pecan pie…a match made in heaven. This is the perfect keto grain-free treat with your morning coffee.
Inside this northern-born gal lives a southerner in disguise. Well, besides the fact that I don’t really like the heat and humidity. And I love the change of seasons and would miss them terribly if I lived in the South. Oh, and I have a Canadian accent and love hockey and skiing and all sorts of snowbound sports you can’t do in places like Georgia. So what makes me a latent southerner? I just can’t seem to get enough pecans! I love all sorts of southern foods, from real southern BBQ to red velvet to anything Cajun flavoured. And fried chicken…who doesn’t love fried chicken? But I honestly do not think there is anyone in the world who loves pecan pie as much as I do. No, no you don’t. You really do NOT love it as much as I do. It’s simply not possible.
When I was a kid, pecan pie was my go-to dessert. Well, one of them anyway, as it had to compete with two Canadian classics, butter tarts and Nanaimo bars. But really, if pecan pie was on the menu at a restaurant, I would eat only half my dinner and save room for a big piece. At Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving, mind you), pecan pie HAD to grace the dessert table. I was a willful child and my parents knew better than to cross me on that issue.
While I can no longer have the sugary, corn syrup laden original, I am sure doing my best to get low carb pecan pie into my diet. I already have three pecan pie-based recipes. Why not add one more? One that goes deliciously with your coffee in the morning. Pecan pie for breakfast? Yes please!
