Following a relatively sugar free and lower carb lifestyle this simple recipe for making candied nuts is right up my alley. They work equally well with sugar or Splenda or Stevia. I’ve used cashews in the picture below because I was given a large container of them for Christmas but you can use any nuts you like. These make a great snack and are also good sprinkled on salads. Even if you use real sugar they contain far less sugar than the sweet nuts you buy in the store.
Regular or Sugar Free Candy Nuts

- 1 egg white
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1/2 cup of white sugar or sweetener of your choice (Stevia or Splenda work well)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
