Frequently Asked Questions

Can I eat pecans on keto?

Wondering if pecans are keto? Yes, pecans are one of the most keto friendly nuts out there. Per serving (1 ounce), pecans have just 3.9 grams total carbs. You can find my full breakdown on keto nuts here.

Are candied pecans keto?

Regular candied pecans are not keto friendly, as they are made with sugar. These keto sweet pecans are low carb and keto, though, thanks to Besti Brown sweetener.

How many calories in sugar free candied pecans?

The full nutrition stats can be found below the recipe card, but each serving (1/4 cup) has 175 calories.

Can I use a different sweetener?

These low carb candied pecans are best made with Besti Monk Fruit Allulose Blend, my brown sugar substitute. You can use other keto sweeteners, but the flavor won’t be the same. It has a very similar taste and consistency, but it’s sugar-free, gluten-free, and low carb. It’s also a natural product, which is important to me when choosing a sugar replacement. I’m happy to report that it worked out perfectly in this sugar-free candied pecans recipe.

Grease a 4 quart (4 L) slow cooker and place the pecans inside.

In a small bowl, whisk together egg white and vanilla extract until it’s foamy. Pour the mixture over the nuts and stir to coat all the nuts.

In a medium bowl, combine Besti Brown and cinnamon. Evenly pour the mixture over the pecans and stir to coat all the nuts again.

Cook on low for 3 hours, stirring at 20 minute intervals. In the last 20 minutes, stir in the water.

When done cooking, arrange the nuts in a single layer on parchment paper to cool. If there are any clusters stuck together, you can break them apart after cooling. Store in an airtight container.

Optional step: To make the nuts extra crispy, plus add a toasted aroma and taste, place them in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F (204 degrees C) for 4-7 minutes.
