FODMAP Diet Desserts - candied pecans on top of vanilla ice cream

How delicious are candied nuts? I can seriously eat them by the bag full before I even notice the dent I made into them (and soon to be stomachache).  For this exact reason, I came up with a healthified version that exchanges the white sugar and butter with maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.  I promise you will be hooked on this lighter version and won’t have to feel as guilty when the bag is empty. :0  These are delicious to eat alone or add on top of FODMAP diet desserts like this chunky monkey ice cream or this pumpkin pie recipe!

I love giving homemade gifts during the holidays.  It’s a more personal way to show your family and friends how much you love them.  A perfect presentation for these candied pecans would be to put them in a mason jar with a holiday ribbon.  What are your favorite holiday homemade gifts? I would love to get ideas from you!
