My good friend Amber, from Texas, is the queen of crispy nuts and all healthy treats that involve a dehydrator. I couldn’t resist sharing her Chipotle Cheesy Pecans with you because they are simply irresistible. One bite and you want to eat a whole handful. And really, you can, because they make the perfect paleo snack idea. They’re high in good-for-you fats, no sugar added and burst with flavor. These vegan delights will even fool you into thinking they have real cheese. I was actually surprised when my 3-year-old proclaimed them to be his favorite snack, but like I always say, the test of a winning recipe is if my kids will eat it. Thanks, Amber. And happy snacking y’all.
