Keto Candied Pecans

Growing up, my favorite movie theater snack was candied pecans! The warmth, sweetness, and crunch of candied pecans is not only amazing, but it is the perfect movie snack! They are addicting!

 

I am so excited that I will once again get to enjoy an old favorite at the movies (even if I have to smuggle it in like a drug mule)! These keto candied pecans will for sure be your new favorite movie theatre snack! We recommend making a big batch of these, separating them into bags, freezing them, and then taking them out the day before you plan a trip to the movies.

 

These Keto Candied Pecans are delicious no matter how you eat them, but in my opinion, they are even better when they are served warm. While these make for an amazing freeze and go snack, they are definitely best warm. If you’ve had candied pecan before, you know this is true!

 

My favorite thing about these candied pecans may be that they are super easy to make! I am all about quick and easy dishes and snacks, and these pecans fit that description perfectly! Just a few simple ingredients and a couple of minutes are all you’ll need to start enjoying these yummy candied pecans.

I've made these twice now. The first time was crunchy and addicting! Although there was a definite "cooling" effect with each mouthful, almost like the sensation of eating a peppermint patty minus the peppermint/chocolate flavor. But we ate these up nonetheless. I tried it a second time using 1/4 cup Golden Monk Fruit and 1/4 cup allulose. This substitution took care of the cooling effect but the coating never hardened so the pecans were not crunchy. :( Do you have a suggestion on how to make this without the "peppermint patty cooling effect" but still retain the crunch? (P.S. We've been keto for 2 years so we are fully aware of, and adjusted to, the tastes of stevia and monk fruit. We use them both regularly. But this was definitely the most "cold" my taste buds have felt. The flavor was delicious though and I will make these again for sure.)

Hello! I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe, and I tried researching to find the answer to your question. The only thing I could find is that allulose just takes longer to crisp up. From what I found, it will take a day or two after the pecans are cooked to get that crunch factor.

should you lightly toast the pecans first??

Kasey

There is no need to toast them first!

So simple yet delicious! My first attempt bombed. I had the heat too high and scorched it a bit. It also didn't seem to thicken much. My second attempt was perfect :)

What do you consider one serving? How many pecans or how many ounces?

Kasey

This recipe makes 6 servings. I just looked up the ounces fro 1.5 cups pecans and one serving should equal about 1/4 cup or about 1.1 ounces. Enjoy!
