  • 1/2 cup butter 1 stick
  • 2 tbsp sweetener monkfruit, splenda, stevia
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup pecan halves


  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper.
  • Grease the paper with your preferred method (nonstick cooking spray, wipe it with the butter wrapper, etc.)
  • Melt butter and sweetener on the stovetop in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and allow the mixture to brown without stirring it until it reaches a deep caramel color. This takes about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and heavy cream.
  • Add pecans to this pot and stir gently to coat.
  • Scoop pecans onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle any excess sauce over the pecans.
  • Refrigerate to set.


  • You can use any sweetener of your choice, but if you want it to be low carb then use Stevia, sucralose, erythritol, monk sweetener, xylitol, yacon syrup, etc.
  • Give the pralines at least 20 minutes to set, 2 hours is better. It will depend on a variety of factors, but avoid removing them from the baking sheet prematurely. 
  • Afterwards, store in an airtight container.
