Sugar Free Glazed Pecans – Single Serving Size

I’ve been back on the low carb wagon this week, trying to be smarter about my carb intake and keep my blood sugars in the normal range as well as lose a bit of weight. I was doing great for three days and then the craving for popcorn hit. You know the one – ignore it and you just might eat everything in sight trying to eat around the craving.

In the past, nuts have been a real go-to that helps me overcome these cravings (also fat bombs, such as the recipe you can find here for Low Carb Raspberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs).

I wanted more than just a handful of nuts, though, so I decided to throw together a tried and true favorite with my new love Erythritol sweetener. These turned out so very good. I wish I could describe just how amazing they were. I’d share, but I ate them all.

Sugar Free Glazed Pecans – Single Serving Size

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons butter (I used grass fed, but if you're on a tight budget, use cheapest butter you can find, such as butter from Aldi's)
  • 2 Tablespoons Erythritol
  • 2 Tablespoons Splenda
  • 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon (or to taste)
  • Handful of Pecans
  • Parchment paper

Instructions

  1. *I really like the taste of the mix between Splenda and Erythritol, but you can use the sweetener of your choice. I used granulated for both.
  2. Preheat oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Add butter to a bowl and melt in microwave (best to use a glass bowl so the plastic doesn't leach into your food)
  4. Throw a handful of nuts into the melted butter and toss until completely coated. Don't worry if it seems to be too much butter. It isn't.
  5. Mix dry ingredients together.
  6. Toss nuts in dry mix (a baggie works great for this, close top, and shake, shake, shake).
  7. Lay parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spread nuts out.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes in an electric oven and 12 minutes in a gas oven (give or take)
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
