Every time I think of sugar-free or diet snacks, a few things come to mind…tasteless and aftertaste. Not so good.
But this recipe is the total opposite of that. We love sugar… some of us here are almost addicted to sugar. So recipes like this are always welcome.
These scrumptious vanilla pecans are sweetened with Swerve, a product we’ve been using quite often in order to minimize our sugar intake.
Think of this treat as the perfect snack, something low calorie and delicious to have in a jar on your counter top just waiting for you.
Make a couple of batches and have them handy if you’d like to share them with family and friends. Enjoy!
Sugar Free Vanilla Pecans
- 1/3 cup granulated Swerve Sweetener
- 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg white
- 8 ounces (2 cups) raw pecans halves
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl combine the Swerve, vanilla paste, egg white, salt and cinnamon. Add the pecans to the Swerve mixture, toss to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet. Make sure to spread in a single layer. Bake 25 minutes. Stir a few times during baking.
Let cool completely and store in a lidded container at room temperature.
