 Coach Calie Baked Rosemary Pecans Recipes

It's the first of many holiday recipes coming your way and they're all plant-based. Hang on...don't go running away from this post just because you're paleo or love meat. These dishes still make great compliments to animal protein and you can always sub in real butter or ghee for the coconut oil I use. 

These baked rosemary pecans will be making an appearance at Thanksgiving & Christmas. The pecans have 19 different vitamins and minerals plus lots of age defying antioxidants. You're getting double the anti-aging benefits with the addition of rosemary, which also helps boost the immune system, memory, digestive health and aids in healthy circulation. So basically, a delicious, nutrient dense, holiday snack that you can prepare in less than 15 minutes.
