I just posted this over at FA… and while I know many of you might not be as “obsessed” with clean eating as they are over there… I figured you could appreciate this clean, ridiculously awesome recipe anyway!
So it’s getting colder in Kentucky and one thing that I love when it’s cold is candied pecans and walnuts. I looked around and modified a recipe to find a HEALTHY way to make them! Here you go! You will need:
1 cup walnuts/pecans or both (I used 1/2 cup of each)
7 packets Truvia (Stevia-based granulated sweetener)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon melted Coconut oil
a few drops of vanilla extract
1 egg white (room temperature)
1 teaspoon water
Pre heat oven to 300 degrees. Mix together Truvia and cinnamon in a bowl. Then mix together the egg white, water, vanilla and coconut oil in a bowl being careful that all of them are room temperature or a little warmer so that the coconut oil stays liquid. Pour the nuts into the liquid mixture and coat thoroughly. Then pour them into the Truvia/cinnamon mixture and coat evenly. Then spread them out on a baking sheet (breaking apart any clumps) and bake in the oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. They will be a little soggy when you take them out.
Let them cool on a plate or on parchment paper for 30 minutes and they will be nice and crispy! They are DELICIOUS! But be careful… my boyfriend and I just “accidentally” split the whole batch in one sitting… OOPS! =D (oh yeah and DON’T refrigerate them! Leave them in an airtight container for up to a week! YUM!)
ENJOY! Let me know what you think!
