Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups coarsely chopped pecans, divided
  • 1 3/4 cups other nuts and seeds (almonds and sunflower seeds)
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup Swerve, Granular
  • 2 tsp maple extract
  • 1 egg white
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a food processor, combine 1 1/4 cup of the pecans with the other nuts, seeds and chia seeds. Process on high until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (some larger pieces are fine). Transfer to a large bowl and stir in salt. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter and Swerve until Swerve is dissolved. Bring to just a boil, then remove from heat and stir in maple extract.
  4. Stir butter mixture into ground nut mixture. Stir in egg white until fully incorporated. 
  5. Spread mixture out on prepared baking pan in an even layer. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove and let cool.

    Hi there..... I am a bit confused on the amount of nuts. I understand 1 and 3/4 cup pecans. But the 1 and 3/4 cup other nuts and seeds....do you mean combined to make 1 and 3/4 cup? Thanks!

    • Swerve

      Hi Amy! Thanks for visiting our website! The recipe calls for 1 and 3/4 cups of pecans, plus 1 and 3/4 cups other nuts, like almonds and walnuts. So the total amount of nuts in the recipe should be 3 and 1/2 cups. I hope this helps! Enjoy the recipe!

  • Liane

    This looks so yummy! I'm not a fan of chia seeds. Could we replace the chia seeds with something else like bacon bits? Thanks!

    • Swerve

      Hi Liane, that should work fine!

  • Alianna013

    Do the nuts have to be raw or can they be roasted and salted?

    • Swerve

      We'd recommend using raw nuts, since you will be baking them.

  • Gina Vasquez

    How should this be stored after making it and what is the expiration ?

    • Swerve

      Hi Gina! You should store in an airtight container. At room temperature (which we recommend) for about a week. Thanks for the question!
