5 minute low-carb candied nuts made with whatever type of nuts you prefer. Made with a sugar-free sweetener, these candied nuts are totally ketogenic and low-carb. Guilt-free and delicious, they are the perfect snack or dessert for when your sweet tooth strikes.
1tablespoonbuttersalted or unsalted
1/4cupgranulated erythritol or stevia blendI used the Pyure brand (32 g). I do not recommend a brown sugar blend, as others have had issues with it not melting. A granulated white sweetener blend works best.
1cupraw nut of your choiceI used almonds (128 g)
To a nonstick pan over medium heat, add butter until melted. Add in vanilla extract and sweetener and stir to combine. The mixture may become clumpy, that is totally fine.
Add in raw nuts and stir until well-coated.
After a few minutes of stirring, the sweetener should become liquid. Continue stirring for a few minutes, until the liquid begins to caramelize.
Pour mixture onto parchment paper and allow it to cool for several minutes before consuming. Break apart, and enjoy!
These nuts should store for roughly one week in an air-tight container at room temperature. However, I recommend consuming them within a few days, as that is when they are the freshest.Nutrition Facts (per serving): 234 calories, 21 g total fat, 20 g total carbs, 12 g sugar alcohols, 4 g fiber (4 g net carbs), 8 g protein
