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.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.
