One of the hardest textures to replicate on the keto diet is crunch. The crunch on the 'Candied Spiced Pecans' is irresistible and bring loads of flavor and a desire to gnom on more. The sweet plays incredibly well with a little flake salt on top! Just be sure to salt them immediately after removing them from the pan. The best part is they're completely sugar-free and full of healthy fats. Feel free to change up the spices you use to your liking. Enjoy!

DifficultyBeginnerPrep Time5 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time15 mins

Ingredients
 1 cup whole mammoth pecans
 3 tbsp granulated sweetener (erythritol, stevia, allulose, or xylitol)
 21 g extra-virgin coconut oil, room temperature
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ½ tbsp cinnamon
 Maldon salt to taste

Directions
1

Line a small plate or sheet tray with parchment paper or silpat and set aside.

2

In a small sauté pan over medium-high heat, place your pecans in the pan and begin toasting them until fragrant, occasionally stirring or tossing as they toast. You can also toast them in the oven at 375 degrees 6 to 7 minutes or until fragrant.

3

In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly to create a paste. Toss this mixture into the pan and let melt. Allow the sweetener to brown and lightly caramelize. Be careful here there will be some smoke as you toss them and don’t push them too far to where they burn.

4

Pour nuts onto parchment paper or silpat and let cool for 10 minutes before consuming. Enjoy!
