In one word pecans can be described as “delicious.” This particular kind of nut has rich, sweet, buttery flavor that is impossible not to fall in love with. Pecans have been widely used by Native Americans for centuries and are still popular today. However, nowadays they are more celebrated as a delicious snack than a remedy.

It doesn’t diminish the fact that pecans are exceptionally beneficial for your health. They are very nutritious and can boost your energy levels quickly. Like other nuts, they are somewhat high in calories. However, pecans contain healthy fats, so the chances of your waistline growing from eating them are minuscule.

Health Benefits

The most important benefits that you can get from including pecans in your diet on a regular basis are:

  • Lowering of blood cholesterol levels and heart disease prevention
    High levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol are a major contributing factor for heart disease, stroke, and many other dangerous conditions that target your blood vessels. Pecans are packed with oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fat that effectively boosts your level of “good” HDL cholesterol and cleanses your arteries from dangerous pollution.
  • Removing toxins from your body and cancer prevention
    Oxidation deals a significant amount of damage to your body on a cellular level. Pecans contain substantial amounts of antioxidants, such as vitamin E, zeaxanthin, and ellagic acid. They protect your body from the strikes of free radicals, as well as assist in removing toxins. It improves your overall health, slows down the process of natural aging, and reduces the risks of developing some severe diseases.
    In fact, the ellagic acid, in particular, possesses the ability to prevent certain carcinogens from binding to your DNA. Therefore, it boosts your body’s natural protection from cancers significantly.
  • Reducing the risk of many diseases.
    Pecans are full of essential nutrients. Therefore, that eating them on a regular basis will ensure that you don’t develop any serious deficiencies. Because it’s elemental deficiencies that serve as a significant risk factor for many diseases, eating these delicious nuts will significantly reduce your chances of developing these health problems.

Please note that pecans are nuts and, therefore, can cause type-1 hypersensitivity response in the people allergic to them. If you have a prior history of showing allergic reactions to any nuts, you should exercise caution.

Culinary Uses

Pecans can be eaten raw. They can be salted or sweetened to suit your taste without any loss of the product’s initial nutritional value. Due to their rich buttery flavor, pecans are often used in desserts, especially sundaes.

Pecan nut butter is a great spread to go with bread. When processed in this way, the nuts maintain a considerable amount of their original nutritional value.

Unshelled nuts can be stored for months in a cool, dry place. However, their shelled counterparts should be kept in an airtight sealed container inside a refrigerator.

  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup raw pecans
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (little scant)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Line a loaf dish or similarly sized small pan with parchment paper. Place the cashews, dates, and raisins in a food processor. Pulse until the nuts and fruits are crumbly, then add the pecans and the remaining ingredients and process again, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple of times, until the mixture has come together and becomes sticky (don’t overprocess, as pecans can make mixture too oily if overworked). Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf dish. Press the mixture firmly into the pan (using a small piece of parchment is easiest).

Healthy Vegan Pecan Pie Tartlets

Healthy Vegan Pecan Pie Tartlets

Ingredients:

Walnut Tart Shell

  • 1 ¾ cup walnuts
  • 3 dates
  • pinch of salt

Pecan Filling

  • 1 ½ cups large medjool dates soaked for at least 30 minutes
  • about ½ cup pecans

 

Instructions:

  1. In a food processor combine the ingredients for the Walnut Tart Shell. Blend until the pieces are broken down and stick together when pressed. Spoon evenly into tart pans or an oiled mini muffin tin (for tartlets) and press down gently to create a thin, even crust on the bottom and sides. Place in freezer while making the filling.
  2. Place the soaked dates in a food processor or powerful blender. Add about 1-2 tbsp fresh water and blend until smooth and gooey, scraping down the sides often. Spoon or pipe filling into chilled crusts and top with pecans. Place in refrigerator and allow tartlets to set up for at least 1 hour.
  3. Several people have mentioned difficulty in removing the tarts from the muffin tin. If they don’t want to come out, stick the pan in the freezer for about 30 minutes until shells harden. Remove and run a knife around the edge of each tart. Using the knife, pop tarts out from the bottom.

Enjoy!

    I have been buying nuts from this seller for a few years now. Top quality and freshness. Nuts are getting so expensive you have to buy in bulk to afford them! I keep them in my freezer, and keep a zip lock bag full to use from my refrigerator.

    I didn’t respond about this product because I didn’t open it until the other day. The nuts are great. I used them in baking but would imagine that these would be perfect for just a snack (I sneaked a couple).

    This has become a regular order in our house. We have found the pecans fresh and in good pieces. We use them in our home made granola, as well as baked goods and to eat just by the handful. A decent price for a reliable product.

    Ordered and loved these pecans! Because I thought the price was a little higher than it should be, I tried another company when I wanted to indulge again and save a little money, but was not at all satisfied. If you want to enjoy a handful of pecans (or more!) these are the ones to buy.

    I roast a nut mixture, add a little soy sauce and maple syrup, and voila! Tastes great. Also adds great flavor to shortbread-style cookies.

    I know a lot of the reviews said pecans were all in pieces but vast majority of mine are whole. Seems to be good quality especially for price.

    Received promptly and well packaged. Haven’t opened them yet, plan on making pecan bars for Christmas. From what I can see through the pkg they are good size and plump.

    I have ordered multiple times from this seller and have been very pleased with the freshness of the nuts and beans each time. Shipping is prompt. Will continue to return to shop with them.
