Nearly 60 percent of the fats in pecans are monounsaturated and another 30 percent are polyunsaturated, leaving very little saturated fat in pecans. The unsaturated fat in pecans is heart-healthy fat meeting the new Dietary Guidelines that recommend Americans keep intake between 20 and 35 percent of calories, with most fats coming from heart-healthy sources like fish, nuts and vegetable oils. In addition, pecans contain no trans fat.
How to roast the perfect pecan:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place 1/2 cup of shelled pecans on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for approximately 7 minutes. Check toward the end, to be sure they don’t burn.
