These candied pecans are such a quick and easy keto snack to make and perfect if you need a little pick me up treat that won’t send your blood sugar levels soaring.

Crunchy, crisp, buttery and sweet. These low-carb caramelised pecans will rock your world!

We used a brown sugar substitute that gives these candied nuts their caramelised flavour and crunchy texture. You can use other options such as allulose or any erythritol-based sweeteners. If you prefer to skip the sweetener, you can add a touch more cinnamon and/or vanilla to boost the flavour.
