I’ll admit that I’m not much of a nut-eater – but I know that they are a great source of fiber and make a very handy snack. But which ones are low carb? Check out this table of nutritional data for one ounce of nuts and seeds:
Check out the ones I have circled! This had me convinced, but I decided to make my nut snack chocolaty!
Add the nuts to a small slow cooker (I use a small 3-quart one or an Instant Pot with slow cooker option) – my mixture was walnuts, pecans and slivered almonds. Add melted butter, vanilla extract, cocoa powder and sweetener (I used Swerve), and stir well.
Cook on high for 1 hour. They will smell absolutely amazing when they are cooking!!! Spread the nuts onto a baking sheet to cool.
Store in an airtight container and enjoy this low carb snack anytime!
