Crunchy old fashioned peanut brittle recipe made without any refined sugar. This recipe is healthy, vegan, gluten-free and requires just 4 ingredients. Ready to eat in minutes.
Servings: 20 pieces
- 5 tbsp maple syrup
- 200 g coconut sugar
- 4 tbsp water
- 150 g roasted peanuts
- 1 tsp sea salt
In a saucepan, place sugar, syrup and water and allow to boil once the sugar has dissolved.
Continue to boil on a medium heat until the mixture reaches hard crack stage. You can check by dripping a little into a cup of cold water. If the syrup remains soft and toffee-like it needs a bit longer. If it immediately becomes hard and brittle once in contact with the cold water, it’s ready.
Add the peanuts and mix, ensuring to work quickly.
Remove from the heat once peanuts are fully incorporated into the sugar mix and pour out quickly but carefully onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Allow to cool at room temperature and store in a dry place.
- Coconut sugar can be replaced with brown sugar (or white sugar but will no longer be refined sugar-free)
- Maple syrup can be replaced with another syrup (but may not remain vegan or refined sugar-free)
- Peanut brittle can last up to 2 months in an airtight jar stored in a cool place but if in contact with moisture, will not last so long
