I just spent 15.00 on a 1/2 pound of cinnamon nuts at the mall the other day. $15...crazy and they were full of sugar so I didn't get to eat very many. My girls got to enjoy them. So, I decided to see if there was a recipe I could make at home costing way less than $15 and stumbled across something even I could enjoy and not get sick. I have just made the perfect snack for us gastric bypass people. sugar-free candied walnuts!!! Low carb - check...sugar free - check...protein - check...great taste - check!!! I found the recipe on pinterest and here: http://veronicascornucopia.com/2010/12/22/sugar-free-candied-nuts-low-carb/comment-page-1/#comment-20679
I'm going to be making this for my mother, who is a diabetic, for Christmas..mixing up the nuts a bit...as a matter of fact mixed nuts is a perfect idea. You can really do any nuts with this recipe....pecans, walnuts, almonds...etc. and a mixture of all the above. It couldn't be easier to make.
