  • Heat a large pan or skillet on medium heat. 
  • When hot, add 1 cup of your granulated sweetener, water, and vanilla extract and mix until fully combined. Allow to heat up, stirring occasionally.
  • When the sweetener has completely melted, add your pecans. Start to mix around the pecans in the liquid mixture, ensuring each nut is evenly coated. Continue stirring occasionally, until the sweetener begins to crystallize on the pecans. Turn heat off. 
  • Remove the pan from the stove and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to break apart the pecans before they crystallize together. 
  • Once cooled, toss with the remaining half cup of granulated sweetener and cinnamon and cover in a sealed container. 


* Can be substituted for coconut palm sugar, brown sugar or any white sugar. 
Sugar Free Keto Candied Pecans (Paleo, Vegan) should be kept in an air-tight container, for up to 3 months. Candied pecans are also freezer friendly too.
