Sweet Glazed Pecans

Sweet, buttery and luscious! - These make a delicious snack and happen to be one of my favorite combinations. Sweet Protein. See, I have problems with my blood sugar. So I practice the fine art of trying to make my sweets as protein packed as possible to prevent the spike and crash roller coaster.   - This is like natures popcorn only better because Pecans are so healthy and they make the perfect nut for this job. They are easier to chew, not like the harder nuts that make you feel like you're going to break a tooth AND they are naturally mild in flavor.

Don't forget that Nuts contain anti-nutrients
and it is best if they are soaked prior to eating.

So YumMmmMmmy!!!
Sweet Glazed Pecans:
1/2 Cup Pecans
1 Tablespoon Butter
2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
 -  Directions :
Place Butter (Or Coconut Oil) in a frying pan and melt, add Maple Syrup and lightly fry the Pecans over medium - high heat for 5-10 minutes.
Be CAREFUL - These WILL be Very HOT! - Allow to cool and get to snacking. These are fantastic with a glass of Almond Milk on the side and they satisfy a sweet tooth in a very healthy, protein filled way.
  -  Enjoy!
