What I really love about this recipe is that it derived from, in the words of everyone’s favorite television painter, Bob Ross, “a happy accident.”

I was trying to make a keto-friendly version of caramel turtles, but just couldn’t get the caramel right.

Three different recipes, and each one was more of a flop than the last.

I figured I might as well try to assemble something anyway, so I did, finished them up…tasted one, and accepted my failure.

When my husband got home from work he noticed them on the counter and inquired. I warned him not to try them…but thankfully he didn’t listen.

He took one bite and said…”These aren’t bad!”

Five minutes later he had finished the entire tray and said with his mouth full “These are delicious. They taste like the stuff that’s in a pecan pie.”

He was right! And after a few more recipe tweaks, today’s post was born….

These pecan pie clusters were delicious. I used 2 Tbsp.of golden monkfruit, for the sweetener. I used 2 Ounces of Lily's chocolate baking chips melted. Thank you for such a great Keto treat.

I've made many keto sweets but this is by far and away my absolute FAVORITE! They turned out beautifully and I finally got my taste of pecan pie I've been yearning for (but healthy). Thankyou so much! This recipe is officially in my arsenal now.

My family loved these! Came out perfect! The only adjustments I made was using Swerve powdered sugar instead of Zen Sweet and increased the stove time to 15 minutes so mixture was nice and thick.. Thank you so much!

Whoa. Plot twist for thanksgiving!! I tried the original recipe and it was very good, but I didn’t love the chocolate on top. So, I decided to make another batch sans chocolate. Halfway through I realized I had some leftover pumpkin purée in the fridge, so I added 1tbsp plus pumpkin pie spice when the caramel was almost thickened, let it thicken, then sprinkled maldon sea salt on it and HOLY SHHEEEEET!! Omg so good. I can’t wait to bring it to thanksgiving dinner tomorrow for my family to try!
