The last low carb nut snack I made in the slow cooker was these delicious Cocoa Nuts. These Buffalo Almonds are a variation on the same theme – but instead of sweet cocoa this snack is loaded with buttery and spicy buffalo sauce flavors.
Add melted butter, hot sauce and whole raw almonds to a slow cooker bowl. Note: If you’re making this recipe in an Instant Pot, you can use the sauté function to melt the butter – which is super convenient! Just melt it first, then add the hot sauce and almond! Stir well to coat every nut in the sauce. Cook on low heat for 2 hours.
(Don’t you just love this photo with the reflection of the buffalo almonds around the sides?!?)
Spread the almonds onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment and sprinkle with a little salt. Allow the nuts to cool.
Enjoy the buttery and spicy nuts as a snack any time! They are super portable so are great for on the go! Store in an airtight container.
