Paleo Candied Pecans or Walnuts

On the paleo diet, we don’t use sugar and most recipes that call for candied nuts have sugar in them.

However, I’ve found a workaround by replacing sugar with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. It works just as well.

You simply add the syrup to a skillet, add your nuts and stir until the syrup is incorporated into the nuts.

Then, remove the nuts from the skillet, place them onto a large piece of parchment paper and allow them to cool.

Once cool, you can break the nuts up into smaller pieces.

Pretty cool, eh? A healthier option but they are addicting so I try not to have them too often although I love candied nuts in salads.

  1. Oh my goodness….so easy, so good… I added cinnamon to mine and used them in a steak and mixed green salad. Delicious. And you were right -extremely addictive. Thanks for the recipe.
