Guilt-less Desserts & Treats for your Family
Nut Candies are a no no when eating healthy….or are they?!
This Almond Brittle (which could easily be Pecans, Walnuts or even Pumpkin Seed Brittle) is a sweet treat.
Unlike many commercial versions, the number 1 ingredient is Nuts! Feel free to play around with variety and flavour. Even splash some spices in for fun.
This Almond Brittle can be used to decorate cupcakes or can even be broken up into little pieces and used in a cookie recipe.
- 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 1/4 Cup Almonds, halved

- 2.Place the maple syrup and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat.
- 3.Simmer the mixture over a medium heat until it turns a golden colour.
