Here’s What You Need For These Easy Stovetop Low Carb Candied Pecans:
- Pecan halves
- Unsalted butter
- Sugar free sweetener of choice (we used Swerve Brown Sugar)
- Ground cinnamon
- Kosher salt
- Vanilla extract
- Choc Zero Maple syrup, optional, but delicious. (use code ‘AFullLiving’ for 10% off your order)
We prefer to use real vanilla extract whenever possible, but if you only have imitation vanilla, that will work fine. Vanilla extract and imitation vanilla measure the same.
Sweeteners: We advise sweetening this to taste! You do have a lot of options however. If you use allulose or Ketose Sweet, your pecans will turn out glossy, and sticky. We love them like that! But if you prefer a crunchier candied pecan, use monk fruit or erythritol. In the recipe video, we made the crunchier version so you can see how they turned out both ways. Brown Sugar Swerve or Lakanto Classic or Golden would be great for this application.
For this recipe we also included Choc Zero Maple Syrup for some extra sweetness and flavor. If you omit this, you may want to add some more sweetener to compensate for that. Using the code ‘AFullLiving’ at checkout will get you 10% off your order, as we are an affiliate for ChocZero.
Butter: You can use whatever butter you want for this, but we love using salted for a deeper flavor. Up to you. You can always add more salt later.
