4-Ingredient Candied Pecans (Paleo + Vegan)

Oh. My. God.

These candied pecans are insanely addictive. So maybe make a double batch so you don’t have to share yours. Kidding…okay semi kidding.

But I can’t take credit for this recipe. My mom has been making these for us since we were kids. To this day, when she makes candied pecans, she has to make enough for us all to get a mason jar full to take home. My three brothers and I are all full-grown adults.

And since I have been nursing a stubborn cold for the past week, I made her make some and take a picture for this blog for me. Luckily, she’s a food photographer. Thanks, Mom!

Treat Yo’ Self

Okay… let’s just be clear on something here.

I eat very healthy — obviously. But in no way shape or form do I give up sweet treats. That’s just ludicrous to expect a person to do that. In my program The Clear Skin Solution I always give my clients alternatives to their favourite sweet treats!

You just have to find healthier alternatives.

So over the holiday season (aka the season of cookies, chocolate, and candied everything), choose recipes that aren’t sweetened with loads of refined sugar.

A few of my favourite alternatives are raw honey, real maple syrup and coconut sugar/syrup.

And for those that are on a low-carb plan or are diabetic, monk fruit extract is my favourite with stevia being a runner-up.

These are a few of my favourite treat recipes I have kicking around on the KSW blog:

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

Testimonials

"After a few months, my skin improved significantly."

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

Laurenne B.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
