These fudgy pecan bars are the perfect keto treat! The combination of maple, pecan, and cinnamon smacks of a cool, crisp fall morning, and this sugar-free nut butter captures those rich, spicy flavors to enjoy any time.

After over a year working on my brand new cookbook Sweet & Savory Fat Bombs, I'm excited that it has just been released! Thanks to your amazing support and high volume of pre-orders, it's one of the best sellers in low-carb and paleo books on Amazon - thank you all so much! If you like my book, please, don't forget to leave a review on Amazon, it really makes a difference!

Looking back at my fat bomb cookbook project, creating and testing all the recipes was a lot of fun! I've created many fat bomb recipes, of which over a hundred made it to the book.

Everything came in handy as you can see on the photo below. Apart from my regular photography kit, I came up with some DIY improvements such as the kitchen string to hold one of the reflectors, the lettuce leaves to secure it in place, and a carrier bag filled with dumbbells for counterweight! :-)

Here's how my fridge and freezer looked like when while working on the book cover that required several sweet and savoury recipes for the cover photo. I hate wasting ingredients and luckily, I managed to give most of the fat bombs away. My friends didn't complain :-)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi, This looks delicious. Could you please advise on amounts to convert the sugar & maple extract (in the butter section) to Lankanto Maple Syrup? Thanks, Nicole

Hi Nicole, I'd say 1/4 cup but you might need to add 1 tablespoon of coconut flour if the mixture is too runny. It's hard to tell without trying, just in case it doesn't set well.

Thanks! I couldn't wait and ended up just putting 1 tbs Lakanto Maple Syrup in the Pecan butter part along with a little more oil as my pecans were not as creamy when I food processed them. I then chopped up walnuts and put them in. They turned out really awesome. I appreciate the recipes!!!

Good day!
Did you use toasted nuts for making a butter? And what do you think of soaking nuts before using? As I know it is better to soak them for better digestion..

Hi Marina, yes I do use activated nuts (soaked and dehydrated) in my recipes - as much as I can. I agree, they are better digested. We always recommend soaking for nuts, seeds and also peanuts: Peanuts on a Ketogenic Diet: Eat or Avoid?

This is my second time making these.  Whatever I use for the base Walnut/Pecans I use the opposite for the second part of the recipe.  It works out great.  Love this recipe.  Thank you for your time and talent.  

Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed!

U do not have an amt of butter needed for the spiced maple & pecan butter in first recipe

There is no dairy butter used - it is only nut butter 😉

These were amazing. From other reviews I did add less sweetener and that was perfect, you can always add as you go. I just subbed for what I had and did half walnuts and half pecans and it turned out great! Love this recipe and will be making it in the future! Thank you 😊

Thank you so much Jen, I'm glad you enjoyed!

I made these this afternoon using walnuts, coconut oil and lankato Keto maple syrup. I also used my little 24 section dessert silicone mold tray. They are perfection!! This will be a great go to snack when hubby and I just need a little something.

I'm glad you enjoyed!

Hi.  A lot of keto recipes have eggs.   What is a great substitute for someone like me who cannot eat eggs?

Hi Marie, that is a very generic question and as much as I'd love to answer, I'd need to know where/how you want to use it and whether your aim is to meet your macros or to find a substitute that works well for a specific recipe. There are many egg-free recipes on my blog (use the filtering tool): Recipes

I'm new to the diet I lost almost 100lbs before this diet and got stuck and couldn't loose anymore. I started the diet three days ago and I lost 5lbs. I am doing the intermittent fasting about 12/14hrs a day. I love all the fat bomb recipes I've looked at so far. The next time you have all those extra goodies in the fridge and freezer it would make a nice care package for newbies like me lol. I really do appreciate being able to find quick and easy recipes on here. Thanks a lot.

Well done Brenda, that is amazing! Keto on!

It's possible to do it with hazelnut?

I can't see why not! 😊 But I would skip the maple extract.

Can Xylitol be used in place of Erythritol in your recipes?  This one and any of the others in your cookbook?  Thanks and these look delicious!  I can't wait to try them!  

You can try Swerve, monk fruit or stevia based sweeteners (Complete Guide To Sweeteners on a Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet) - these are the best alternatives. I don't use xylitol because it gives me upset stomach and it has a slight effect on blood sugar. Some people use it in moderation and they're fine with it though.

Would it be possible to use half butter and half coconut oil? Butter for the flavour and coconut oil to help it set.

Yes you can do that. Or even better use melted cacao butter - that will also help it set and will be more stable at room temperature.

This is amazing and I will definitely be making again! I tweaked a little bit and did not use a pinch of salt but used salted butter and it tastes great. I also didn't put pecans on top but instead dumped them all in and roughly chopped them to mix in.  I can eat the whole batch!

Thank you for the tips Tera! 😊

MAPLE + NUTS = LUV  I cheated and just scooped them with a small scoop (golf ball size) and pressed  a pecan in center.  Stored in refrigerator in a bagged. AWESOME!  Thank you for sharing

I made these today and very good.
I made a slight change as I still have a sweet tooth (used 1/8 cup powdered erythritol + 2 tbsp granulated Xylitol).
This pushed the carb count to 2.4g per serving.
I'll eventually wean off Xylitol and stick to Erythritol.
THANK YOU for the recipe Martina, you're a star!

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! 😊

Oh my God I just tried this recipe so yummy so satisfying thank you so much

I dont understand the use of some,of the ingredients in tbe recipes, why would you use something thst is link to stomach issues and is used as a thickener in makeup like,xantham gum. Im new,to this but struggling to understand the use of some of the ingredients after looking them up.

Where did you see xanthan gum? There is no xanthan gum in this recipe.

These are amazing! Thanks fir the great recipe. This was my first keto recipe and I was so happy with how it turned out.

Thank you Jennie! 😊

I made this delicious looking fat bomb..but they came out very very soft...not like yours..I even put them in the freezer to see if this would help..not sure what I did wrong?? Hope my next try is better.

I noticed from a few more comments that this happens sometimes and I'm not sure why. I would try using more butter or coconut oil to help it solidify in the fridge. Other than that, it might be the maple extract that is making it too soft (if it contains glycerin). You may want to try skipping it or using less of the extract.

Hi Martina...
I love your blog and have purchased your book. I made your maple pecan fudge bombs and they are very good however even though I followed your recipe to the tee they came out lighter in color than yours and also did not set up enough that I could cut them into squares. I used swerve as my sugar base. I wondered if you had any ideas on why mine didn't set up. I still eat it but with a

Thank you for your kind words and support Sandra! I'm not sure why that happened. You may want to try using coconut oil or melted cocoa butter instead of dairy butter and let it sit in the fridge for 1-2 hours before cutting. Another thing that may help it get solid is coconut butter (aka coconut manna). The different colour could be caused by nuts (e.g. in case you used walnuts, they are lighter than pecans). I hope this helps!


I have just received your cookbooks in the mail from Amazon. I have been doing Ketogenic diet for about 5-6 weeks now; I started with Maria Emmerich's cookbook but she recommended your cookbook and blog in the back of her book and I have visited your site for info and recipes many times and thus, ordered your cookbook and Fatbombs book. Anyway, I'm very excited to try some sweet recipes out because I have been missing that! But I detest coconut and coconut is a big part of your Fatbombs book--- my question is where you have coconut butter in recipes, can I use ghee or unsalted butter instead?? And what can I use to replace coconut milk powder in the white chocolate recipe? I have found flavorless coconut MCT oil so that's one problem solved lol. Please advise!!! Thanks!

Hi Jessica, thank you for buying my book!
Coconut butter: You can use any nut butter instead of coconut butter - do not use regular butter or ghee. Coconut butter is made from dried blended coconut meat - it is not pure fat like butter or ghee.
Coconut oil: You can use butter or ghee instead of coconut oil.
Coconut milk powder: This is just a guess but you may be able to use vanilla whey protein powder or egg white protein powder instead of coconut milk powder. I haven't tried it and I think you may need to use different amounts. I hope this helps!

Thanks so much Martina-- you are a true lifesaver!!! By the way-- the Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Bombs are truly that-- the Bomb--- SOOO absolutely delicious and refreshing little bites of goodness and the Salted Caramel Chocolate Cups were a huge hit in my house-- you are amazing!! Thanks for your advice and excellent work!!! Happy Keto-cooking 😊

Thank you so much, I really appreciate that and I'm glad you like them!! 😊
