These healthy homemade candied pecans creatively encapsulate all the flavors of the fall season in the decadent candy coating that surrounds the delicious nuts. Unlike the store-bought version, these nut snacks are made from scratch with wholesome ingredients so despite the sweet taste, foodies won't feel guilty munching away at them.

Making candied nuts is very simple with the bulk of the work being making the sauce that hardens into a candy shell. The sauce is made using natural sweeteners such as coconut and maple sugar topped with cinnamon, egg whites, water, vanilla and salt to contrast the sugary ingredients. The ingredients are turned into a thick sauce and then poured over the pecans that are baked in the oven. The end result is an aromatic nut snack that is infused with all the flavors of fall and the holidays.
