Low Carb Cinnamon Almonds lightly toasted with a sweet tasting glaze. This snack is a great afternoon pick-me-up or addition to a salad.
You know those crunchable thick sugar coated almonds that you can get at special events like street fairs or art & craft events? They’re usually near the kettle corn booth.
The aroma is enticing and we buy them every so often, but they’re probably not the best choice because they’re loaded with sugar.
Not to suck the snack joy out of your munching, but just so you know, 1/4 cup of those sugar bombs have about 16 grams of carbs, which can negate the good fiber (4 grams) and protein (8 grams).
With this recipe we cut the carbs to half (about 7 total/net 3) by using sugar alternatives like erythritol! Erythritol doesn’t spike blood glucose or insulin levels, so it’s a good option for anyone that watches their sugar intake.
The best part is that these low carb cinnamon almonds are just as delicious as any sugar coated almond I’ve bought!
I added some to a popcorn snack mix making a tasty sweet and salty flavorful combination! You can also make your own trail mix by mixing these with plain walnuts and macadamia nuts!
