Sugar Free Candied Almonds

In 2010 this recipe was posted when Brown Sugar Twin was one of the few brown sweeteners available.  By 2018 I was using Ideal Brown because BSTwin was no longer available.  Well, soon after this, Ideal no longer made their Brown version either!  So currently in 2019 I use Swerve mostly.

Wanting a snack that was sweet and salty but yet healthy... not chips, I dug through a few recipes and used them to make up my own version with things I had on hand. For people who are low carbing, diabetic or just want a sugar free snack, I thought these were quite tasty!

Sugarfree Candied Almonds

1 1/2 - 2 c whole raw almonds
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/3 cup granular natural sweetener of choice
2 T brown sugar twin Updated for 2018 - they don't make this anymore. Try any brown sugar version sweetener you can find in your area or online

dash of salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F; spray a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan with cooking spray or line pan with foil. Pour almonds in a mixing bowl; add beaten egg white, toss to coat. Combine your granular sweetener and brown sweetener; sprinkle over nuts, toss to coat. Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan. Sprinkle with salt. Bake 30 minutes or until nuts are toasted, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool on waxed paper; store in airtight container.
