🥘Candied Nuts Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white

Reserved the yolk for another purpose.

You can add a splash of vanilla to the egg white if you want to boost the Christmasy flavor even further.

  • 1 tablespoon water

Don’t skip the water or the egg white will be thick on the finished product.

  • 1 pound pecan halves – or nuts of your choice.

You can use any sweetener that you like but allulose is our favorite because of the taste and it’s promising research results concerning weight loss.

The salt balances out the sweetness and brings out the cinnamon. Don’t skip this ingredient.

Cinnamon is always “to taste” in our recipes.

👨‍🍳How to make the Sugar Free Candied Nuts:

1.) Preheat oven to 250F° (120C°). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

The idea is to bake the candied nuts low and slow so that all of the cinnamon and sweetener sticks to the surface.

2.) In a medium mixing bowl, whip together the egg white and water until frothy.

In a separate bowl, mix together allulose, salt, and cinnamon.

3.) Add nuts to the egg whites, stir to coat the nuts evenly.

4.) Remove the nuts, and toss them in the sugar mixture until coated. You can do this shake and bake style in a zipper bag if you like. Spread the nuts out on the prepared baking sheet.

Parchment paper is a must have when you do a lot of baking. It makes cleanup a snap.

5.) Bake at 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) for 1 hour. Stir/flip every 15 minutes to keep them baking evenly.

6.) Once cooled, serve and store the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

📋Tips & FAQ’s:

Can I make the Low Carb Candied Nuts ahead of time?

Yes, they last for up to two weeks in an airtight container. Refrigerate or freeze for up to two months if you’ll be keeping them longer than that.

This snack is really easy to “over eat”. It’s a good idea to portion them out if you are actively trying to lose weight and keeping tabs on your macros.

Can I use the Candied Nuts in any other recipes?

Yesssss! The nuts are a perfect snack alone but go great with tons of other low carb foods.

I think that’s it for the Low Carb Candied Nuts!

I hope you love this super simple recipe! Not only are they a fantastic snack and a welcomed gift, this recipe will save you $$ if you typically buy low carb snacks.
