  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Place the pecans in a single layer on a large non-stick baking sheet, preferably one covered with a silicone baking mat and toast 12-15 minutes until they have a nice fragrance. Stir halfway through, watching them carefully the last few minutes to make sure they don't burn.
  • Set aside your pecans and allow them to cool. If you notice any small pieces that look burnt, discard them because they will adversely impact the flavor of your butter.
  • Place butter and syrup into a food processor and pulse until the syrup is incorporated and the butter is whipped.
  • Add toasted pecans and pulse to desired texture. (I pulsed mine until the pecans were very small.)
  • Place butter in an airtight jar and store in the fridge.


Nutrition note: Because my nutrition label doesn't show sugar alcohols, I have removed them from the total carb count already to simplify things.* If you prefer to do the calculations yourself, Lakanto Maple-Flavored Syrup contains 6g sugar alcohols, 5g fiber, and 12g carbs (1g net carbs) per 2 tbsp.
*Sugar alcohols have been shown not to impact blood sugar, meaning they can be removed from the carb count.
