Sugar-Free Candied Peanuts

User Rating 1 Star Rating (1 Review)


Updated May 11, 2008

These peanuts aren't nearly as candy-like as peanut brittle, but they are in the same family. Cinnamon is optional, but I like it. You can also make them without the syrup and they are still really tasty; they just don't have as thick a coating.


  • 2 cups roasted peanuts
  • 1 raw egg white
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup (I like Maple Grove best)


Preheat oven to 350 F. Either use a non-stick baking sheet, cover with foil, or use a silicon mat.

Whisk egg white until foamy. Add the rest of the ingredients except for peanuts, and whisk together. Add peanuts and stir to coat. Spread on baking sheet in single layer, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until mixture is dry and not soggy.

Makes 8 servings of 1/4 cup each.

Each serving has 3 grams effective carbohydrate, 4 grams fiber, 10 grams protein, and 223 calories.

Waste of nuts!, Guest shiny1969penny

These were terrible, waste of good nuts!! The nuts were just soft, cannot detect hardly any flavor at all, and i even added red pepper for a hint of spicy. If you like your peanuts I suggest you look for a different recipe
