Sugar-Free Candied Pecans Recipe

One thing I love the most is cooking and baking during the holidays.  Since starting my low carb diet I have been sugar-free for almost a year now!  It’s such a good feeling to know I can make delicious treats that are diet approved and super tasty!

Sugar-Free Candied Pecans Recipe

Sugar-Free Candied Pecans Ingredients

  • 4 cups raw unsalted Pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup erythritol
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

 

Sugar-Free Candied Pecans Directions

1. Melt the butter in a small microwave-safe bowl.
2. Add the vanilla, erythritol, and cinnamon to the melted butter mixture.
3. Place 4 cups of pecans in a large ziplock baggie.
4. Pour the mixture into the baggie and shake it until all the pecans have been coated with the butter mixture.
5. Pour the pecans on a large baking sheet. Be sure to line the baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper for easy cleanup.   Also, make sure all the pecans are placed flat on the baking sheet so they don’t stick together.
6. Bake the candied pecans on 325 degrees for about 10 minutes. Careful not to leave them in longer as they will easily turn dark and burn.
7. Allow them to completely cool before you handle them. The sugar-free candy coating will harden once it has completely cooled.

 

Store in an airtight container on the countertop.

Enjoy!

    I love this recipe and I want to make some as Christmas gifts.
    How long will these stay fresh? Will they be ok if they are frozen and then thawed?
