Hi Bold Bakers!
I’m Liv, Gemma’s culinary assistant and resident alternative baker here at Bigger Bolder Baking!
In the midst of the holiday season it’s really important to have a few healthy snacks up your sleeve! My Sugar Free Candied Spiced Nuts are nothing short of addicting, but healthy enough to keep you on track. Made of a mix of my favorite nuts and seeds, then tossed in a mix of aromatic spices and toasted to perfection, these are the perfect thing to nibble on between big holiday meals or even give as gifts.
Made with no sugar and no added oils, these spiced nuts are what you’re looking for!
How to Make Those Spiced Nuts You Love — Sugar Free
Whipping up my Sugar Free Candied Spiced Nuts up takes no more than 10 minutes!
I combine my favorite raw nuts and seeds with just 1 whipped egg white, a little bit of Lakanto Maple Syrup, and my favorite spices. After combining everything in a big bowl, I pop them in the oven for abut 30 minutes. When the nuts are done, they are toasted, crisp, and form lovely little clusters. The egg white will be completely cooked, so no reason to fear if you’ve never used it to make toasted nuts before. The egg white really just adds protein and crunch.
After pulling them out of the oven, I like to let the nuts cool before breaking them into bit size clusters, and that’s all there is to it. The combination of sweet, spicy, and nutty is festive and satisfying, no need for any added sugar or flavorings.
What If I Can’t Eat Nuts?
To make my Sugar Free Candied Spiced Nuts, I used a mix of pecans, almond, walnuts, pistachios, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds. I really like the variety here but feel free to use any combination of nuts you like. If you can’t eat nuts, you can make this with your favorite seeds and they will still come out perfect!
What Spices Can I Use?
Personally, I use a yellow curry powder and then add cinnamon to keep them on the sweet side as opposed to savory, but feel free to use any spice mix you like. From Chinese 5 spice to a Masala blend, these nuts will be delicious. If you’d like to make them on the savory side, I suggest using a smokey blend and some salt. The nuts are really a blank canvas so feel free to use whatever you like.
