kcal per Serving: 220


  • 1 cup mixed nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, etc.)
  • 1/4 cup granulated erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by heating a non-stick skillet or pan over medium heat. Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper nearby.
  2. Combine Sweetener and Spices: In a small bowl, mix the granulated erythritol, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Set this mixture aside.
  3. Toast the Nuts: Add the mixed nuts to the preheated skillet and toast them for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning. The nuts should become slightly fragrant and golden brown.
  4. Add Sweetener and Butter: Reduce the heat to low, add the unsalted butter to the skillet, and let it melt. Sprinkle the sweetener and spice mixture over the nuts, and stir well to coat them evenly. Continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes until the sweetener has caramelized and coated the nuts.
  5. Finish with Vanilla: Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Ensure that all the nuts are evenly coated.
  6. Cool and Enjoy: Transfer the candied nuts to the prepared baking sheet, spreading them out in a single layer. Let them cool completely, allowing the caramelized coating to harden.

Note: These 5-Minute Low Carb Candied Nuts are perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings while staying on track with your keto goals.
