Simple No Bake Peanut Butter Pecan Treats (Low Carb)

(hover over photo to pin) 

So tickled to find this simple, quick and tasty treat at
Low Carb Diet Tips for Busy People

I made it up in minutes and it was ready to enjoy not long after. Simple enough for teens to make.  A super good low carb treat.
Feel free to use any nuts you want. 




SIMPLE PEANUT BUTTER PECAN TREATS (LOW CARB)

1 - 2 c. pecans, toasted (optional)
1/2 c. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
(I prefer it with 1 heaping TB. more)
1/2 c. extra virgin coconut oil 
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 Tb. Torani Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup

Divide pecans evenly into 4 separate dishes. (I used small plastic storage containers) Or...as my sis-in-love made it after tasting my batch, she used cupcake liners, which is an excellent idea!

Combine peanut butter and coconut oil. (I used a 2-cup glass measuring cup with a spout)

Warm in microwave for about 20 seconds; stir well, then microwave for another 20 seconds, then stir until it's smooth. Stir in vanilla and sugar free syrup. Mix until blended.

Divide mixture evenly into the 4 containers. Place covers on containers; refrigerate until set. (It won't take long to set up). 

Mixture will pop out when chilled; break into pieces or enjoy one
whole treat. *-*
