There's always a good point of the day to have a chocolate recipe, don't you agree? It's just something phenomenal that goes along at any time of the day whether it's on dessert, breakfast and even some savory recipes.



About these Candied Pecan-Almond Pies:

Yep, you've heard it here first kids. Or at least that's what I want to think about since this recipe came out from the inspiration of my pantry and what to create next for the blog. Saw these keto candied pecans, then my keto chocolate cookies and then these chocolate covered almonds... the ideas was just there screaming at me!



For the base of this recipe I used a mix of keto chocolate cookies, one the ones I used were from Super Fat, these cookies are just a great gluten free and keto certified option to have on hand. I have actually used them to create one of my favorite and iconic ideas:



This is simply a major combo that you cannot resist, hard to believe that this is also low carb! Plus , besides being insanely delicious, these bad boys are packed with those healthy fats from our almonds and pecans. So that also makes it a double winner!



The perfect afternoon snack, dessert or companion to your latte or tea, no matter if you are with a picky eater! This is a delicious, sweet, fun and nutrient dense fun recipe that might be on repeat all summer long!


For the keto candied pecans and the collagen I used Marigold, a company that I trust and love with all my heart thanks for their transparency, values and amazing products. I love their keto pecans, because as the names says it all, these are keto!




Overall, these are the ingredients needed for this Candied Pecan-Almond Pies:


Loaded with vitamins, minerals from the chocolate, pecans and almonds this pie recipe is truly another level and seriously irresistible! You can even add some collagen powder to add some gut health too!



The chocolate covered almonds that I used in this recipe were from Lakanto, these are sweetened with my favorite sweetener, AKA, monk fruit so these are also a great option for anytone following a low carb, keto diet!
