Some weeks our themes read like cookbook chapters, spotlight ingredients or flavors, or simply request the best recipe for a certain situation. Find an appropriate recipe from your blog archives to fit the theme and add to the link up. Or be inspired to create a new theme-friendly dish worth posting about before next Wednesday.

Each week we feature a handful of our favorite recipes from our HLB Members [learn how to become a Member here: HLB Membership How-To,] giving even more exposure to some of the best you’ve shared from your own kitchen. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Did you know that April is National Pecan Month? We think that pecans are totally worthy of an entire month of celebration over here! Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals and bring your body more antioxidants than any other nut variety! A natural source of high-quality protein and sodium free, pecans are a great snack on their own or as an ingredient in meal dishes any time of day.

Here are some of our favorite recipes featuring pecans from around the HLB community to add to your meal plan this #NationalPecanMonth:

Pecan Pie Baked Oatmeal from The Almond Eater // “This Pecan Pie Baked Oatmeal is made with pecans, maple syrup and cinnamon and is great as a healthy breakfast or dessert.”

Cinnamon Pecan Apple Pancakes from Nutritionist Reviews // “Cinnamon Pecan Apple Pancakes make the perfect weekend breakfast! They are whole-grain, protein rich and are topped with the most delicious cinnamon and brown sugar sautéed apples and pecans.”

Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Maple Pecan Sauce from Running on Real Food // “This dish still gives you that marshmallow-on-top dessert-feel of holiday sweet potatoes but instead of marshmallows they’re topped with insanely delicious maple pecan sauce.”

Maple Bourbon Pecan Chicken from Iowa Girl Eats // “Maple Bourbon Pecan Chicken is sinfully delicious and you will lick your plate clean! This 1-skillet, gluten-free dinner recipe is ready in just 20 minutes.”

Glten Free Cranberry Pecan Breakfast Rolls from Healthy Aperture // “These Gluten Free Cranberry Pecan Breakfast Rolls stole my heart. Not only because they were delish, but also because they were delish enough to serve the entire family.  Less stress + Great taste = a happy holiday memory for all.”

Coconut Pecan Cookies from Mollie’s Sprinkles of Life // “I cut back just a bit on the white sugar, removed the imitation butter flavoring, subbed all of the all-purpose flour for whole wheat white flour, and swapped half the butter for the coconut oil. It made sense being that coconut was an ingredient in the cookie already. I use coconut oil in baking a lot as it is so with this recipe it was a no-brainer.”

Pecan Pie Blondies from Shugary Sweets // Chewy, nutty Pecan Pie Blondies are not only a wonderful recipe to file away for the fall, they also make the perfect treat to bake all year long!

Pecan Pie Rice Krispie Treats from Sinful Nutrition // Pecan Pie Rice Krispie Treats — Two classic dessert recipes join forces to make these addictingly sweet and gooey bars. No marshmallows required!

Pumpkin Pecan Scones from Ari’s Menu // “Ultra-soft pumpkin spiced pecan flour scones are sure to be your new go-to fall treat! Vegan & gluten-free.”

Broccoli Pecan Slaw with Mustard Vinaigrette from No Thanks to Cake // “Just a few ingredients come together with big flavor.  The pecans and toasted noodles add a little crunch, and it’s a great veggie pairing to your favorite meals.”

Cranberry Apple Chutney Pecan Brie Appetizer from Jeanette’s Healthy Living // “This Cranberry Apple Chutney Pecan Brie Appetizer makes an elegant addition to any special menu.”

Pecan Crusted Chicken with Lemony Caper Sauce from Prevention RD // “It has loads of healthy fats in the pecan coating and a flavorful, yet Whole30 compliant creamy sauce to accompany. No shortage on flavors with this dish!”

Honey Pecan Crusted Chicken from Healthy Helper // “This recipe is a simple combination of nuts, whole grain cereal, spices, and a little hint o’ honey that come together to take baked chicken (or whatever protein you’d like!) to the next level.”

Homemade Pecan Sunflower Butter from Balance by Kim // “I wanted my butter on the thicker side, but if you want it to be thinner or need more oil, feel free to use more. If you want a little more sweetness, you can of course add a little more of that too. It is completely up to you.

Pecan Pie Healthy Stuffed Sweet Potatoes from Food Faith Fitness // “These healthy stuffed sweet potatoes have a pecan pie filling and only require 6 ingredients! They’re the perfect sweet and savory, gluten free side dish that’s paleo and vegan friendly!”
