RAPID CITY, S.D. -

Easy stovetop sugar free candied pecans with three ingredients and no sugar, sticky sweeteners or additives.

EASY STOVETOP SUGAR FREE CANDIED PECANS (PALEO, VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE)

3 cups raw, unsalted pecan halves

1 cup granulated sweetener (Truvia preferred)

1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of sea salt

Pinch of cinnamon

Heat a large frying pan or skillet pan on medium heat. When hot, add the sweetener, water, vanilla extract, sea salt and optional cinnamon and mix until fully combined. Allow to heat up, stirring occasionally.

When mixture is completely melted, add the pecans. Watch over the pan and continue stirring often until most of the pecans have been coated and are beginning to crystallize.

Remove pan from the heat and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes, before using a wooden spoon to stir pecans together to avoid clusters. Allow to cool completely before breaking up properly.

Pecan halves can be kept in a sealed container for at least two months. For even longer storage, freeze in an airtight container.

For large pecan clusters, allow to cool for 10 minutes before breaking up.
