These flavourful, Australian-grown raw Pecans are grown and processed locally in our home state of Queensland. They have a fresh, sweet nut flavour with a creamy texture. Pecans are naturally softer than some other varieties of nuts making them the perfect snack for young and old. They are great to snack on as is, or the perfect addition to a range of raw foods. These include baked goods, desserts and savoury recipes. Freshly ground Pecan meal (or flour) and pecan nut butter are also popular and easy to make.
Raw pecans contain a variety of beneficial nutrients. They are also packed with antioxidants and may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol. Like other nuts, pecans also contain polyphenols, which are compounds that act as antioxidants. Eating raw pecans as 20% of your daily calorie intake can show improved antioxidant profiles in your blood.

Australian pecan nuts are a fabulous snack on their own, or delicious when combined with dried fruits and seeds in a yummy hiker’s mix. These raw nuts are great roughly chopped and added to muesli, smoothie bowls or breakfast bowls.
Pecans can be ground to a fresh ‘meal’ suitable for sprinkling over desserts and savoury dishes, or adding to baking recipes. Or blend finely ground nuts, with a little oil, into smooth dairy-free nut butter. Pecans add a little crunch to rice or green salads.
Pecans are always a hero in baking recipes, especially muffins, boiled fruit cakes, choc-chip cookies, nut & seed bread and, of course, the classic Pecan pie. For a real sweet treat, lightly toast these pecans in a little pure maple syrup. Pecans are also wonderful served with yoghurt, fruit salad or ice cream; added to homemade chocolate recipes; or for something special when entertaining.
