Author:
Recipe type: Candy
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter (or coconut oil)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • pinch of salt (if you use salted butter, you can omit)
  • ½ cup raw pecans (I've also made this with cashews and macadamia nuts)
Instructions
  1. Line a small baking dish with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Melt butter in a small sauce pan.
  3. Add pecans and lightly fry. When you smell the pecans remove them with a slotted spoon. Hold in prepped baking dish.
  4. Add coconut sugar and salt. Stir until coconut sugar is melted and doesn't appear grainy.
  5. Add pecans back to pan and mix in. Remove from heat.
  6. Pour praline mixture into prepped baking dish. Smooth the mixture out to the corners as best you can.
  7. Bake at 450°F for 5-6 minutes. Remove from oven promptly when the top is bubbly.
  8. Let cool to room temperature before cutting into squares.
Notes
For extra indulgence, coat with dark chocolate for a candy bar experience!

The difference between done and burnt is about 15 seconds. Watch the oven closely in the last two minutes. (I use my toaster oven for this recipe.) Once the entire surface is bubbly, remove it from the oven carefully. It will be roughly the temperature of molten lava!
