Easy Candied Walnuts

These easy candied walnuts make a sweet low carb, keto and paleo friendly sweet treat to make all through the year – although they are especially perfect as a holiday season party snack or to gift as a homemade treat over the Thanksgiving and Christmas Festive Season.

This makes a sweet snack that you can enjoy by the handful or you can use it as a topping for seasonal salads or desserts.

The caramelized nuts are pretty addictive, sweet, yet subtly savory, each bite contains a crunchy and crisp coating with a gooey, chewy nut within.

Ingredients For Low Carb Candied Walnuts

Here are the simple ingredients that you’ll need to make the easy candied nuts:

Egg White – you only need one egg white to bind the candied walnuts together. The egg white is used in place of butter or coconut oil, making the nuts a naturally dairy free easy dessert. (Plus they add nutritious protein to the already protein rich snack.)

Stevia – is my sugar free sweetener of choice, feel free to substitute with any sugar or sweetener you like, including swerve, granulated stevia, monk fruit sweetener or erythritol.

Vanilla Extract & Salt – for flavor and to balance the sweetness of the treat.

Ground Cinnamon – to add a wholesome spice to the nuts, use as little or as much as you’d like, depending on how rich of a cinnamon flavor you’d like. You could warm spices like mixed spice or nutmeg instead of or as well as the cinnamon.

Walnuts – the star ingredients – walnuts – you can use any sized walnuts, chopped, sliced or whole, in the recipe. (You could also swap the walnuts for almonds, pecans or include a variety for a mixed candied nuts treat.)

These candies walnuts are super simple to prepare and you only need a few low carb friendly ingredients to create the addicting sweet treat.

Strat by simply whisking together an egg white, stevia, vanilla extract, salt and ground cinnamon until well combined and frothy.

You don’t even have to get your electric beaters out, a wire whisk does the job perfectly.

Then, stir walnuts through the sweet batter until each nut is completely covered in the sweet cinnamon mixture.

Move the walnuts to a lined, well greased baking tray, flatten down completely and bake in the oven until crisp and golden.

Store completely cooled walnuts in an airtight container and enjoy within a week. (If they last that long!)

You can enjoy the walnuts simply by the handful as a wholesome homemade snack or sweet treat. Or, you can chop up a couple and sprinkle them over yogurt, ice cream or fruit as a sweet, crunchy topping.

Another way to enjoy the nuts is to combine them together with other keto friendly ingredients in a simple homemade low carb trail mix.

To ensure the walnuts are low carb and keto friendly, I have used granulated stevia for sweetness.

You can feel free to substitute with any sweetener or sugar of choice, depending on your tastes and dietary requirements.
