Well, not that I am a huge fan of alcohol sugars, but I made these for my son. He has seen a holistic dentist for cavities, and he is supposed to go long stretches of time without any carbs. The dentist thinks when he eats carbs is more important than what kind of carbs. So, there should only be 2-3 times a day when he eats carbs. However, I know what kinds of carbs I don’t want him to eat, of course! We are pretty strict around here. No gluten, grains, artificial anything, hydrogenated anything, corn syrup, etc etc. But, in absence of what I could feed this extremely hungry and picky boy, I opted for something with xylitol. Xylitol will kill tooth bacteria, instead of feeding them. This holistic dentist I saw convinced me nuts are a better choice, while his teeth are re-mineralizing and healing. I was very very impressed with this dentist, who practices in Dothan, AL. So impressed, we actually drive 6+ hours each way to see him.
So, here they are! He loved them. You shouldn’t use too much xylitol, it can cause some gas and stomach distress over a certain amount, so I really do mean a small sprinkle on these nuts.
