These baked bites are ideal for when you fancy a treat! They're not super sweet, which will suit some people better than others – and you could always melt some low carb chocolate (something like Lily's would work well) and drizzle it over if you wanted to increase the sweetness!
I served them recently at the end of a meal with friends. I knew that they weren't big sweet or dessert people, so I just put the bowl of these Pecan and Almond Balls on the table and everyone commented that they went with the wine, coffee, and whiskey, that various members of the party were consuming!
The prep time is really low on these, so give them a try – oh and they're gluten free, too – so my husband LOVED them!
How to Make Low Carb Pecan and Almond Balls
Add some butter, almond flour, sweetener (I used Lakanto – my go-to granular sweetener these days – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!), and an egg to a stand mixer bowl, and beat until fully combined.
Stir in the pecans. Form the mixture into small balls (this recipe makes about 16), and place them on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated oven for twenty minutes or until cooked through and browning on top. Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
These are amazing when freshly baked – but also keep well in an airtight container!
