Carbs in Pecans

Pecans are a nut that are quite keto friendly. There are 1 g net carbs in 1/4 cup chopped pecans. Of course, you don’t want to go overboard with nuts on the keto diet as the carbs and fat can add up quickly but for desserts, it is okay to add some nuts for flavor and texture. Of course, pecan pie muffins would be pecan pie without the nuts!

Tips for Making Low Carb Pecan Pie Muffins

It’s not complicated to make these keto muffins. Everything is added to one bowl, mixed, poured into liners and baked. But there are a few key elements to making these pecan pie muffins that you might want to keep in mind when baking.

  • Use muffin liners – This will prevent the pecan pie muffin batter from sticking to your muffin tin even if you have a non-stick muffin pan.
  • Spray liners with cooking spray – These keto pecan pie muffins can be sticky. To prevent them from sticky the wrapper and make the wrapper easy to peel off, spray the liners with a little bit of cooking spray (coconut oil, avocado oil or butter spray)
  • Fill liners to the top with batter – Pecan pie muffins don’t rise very much, so go ahead and fill the liner to the top with the muffin batter.
  • Cooling – If you want a muffin that you can handle and eat on the go, it’s best to wait until these muffins cool completely before eating. But these keto pecan pie muffins are really good when you eat them right out of the oven because the center is still gooey and warm.

Store leftover low carb muffins in the refrigerator for 4-5 days or at room temperature for 2-3 days. These muffins will harden as they set out especially if you leave them at room temperature. You can freeze these keto muffins as well.
