KETO CHEDDAR PECAN CRISPS
These Keto Cheddar Pecan Crisps are inspired by the ones I tasted recently in Savannah, Georgia.
Cheddar Pecan Crisps
Recently, Sam and I exhibited our KetoLuxe foods at the Southern Women’s Show in Savannah. There, I discovered Cheddar Pecan Crisps made by a local pecan farmer. Intrigued, I had to taste one. Just one. The unique combination of cheddar and pecans was delightful.
Since I eat keto, I decided to make my own version of Cheddar Pecan Crisps. Gluten free, sugar free, and low carb, this gourmet cracker recipe calls for almond flour. My twist results in a guilt-free tasty bite.
Chef Alexa chops the pecans by hand for best flavor and texture. With a food processor, it is too easy to over process them.
Serve these crisps with Salted Butter for a light and elegant snack. If you’re hosting a party, put them on a pretty platter and watch your guests reach for more. This taste of Georgia will stay on your mind until you make them again.
Butter is my condiment of choice for these crisps. Making your own is super easy. Check out my recipe for Salted Butter here.
