👨🏻🍳 Recipe Instructions
How to make Low Carb Spiced Nuts?
This recipe could not be any easier and was a joy to make, especially when I got to taste the wonderful warm spices blended with the sweetener. We had to tuck them away, otherwise we would have finished them in the same day.
First set your oven to 350°F. This temperature is just warm enough to roast the nuts without burning them. Plus it gives the roasted nuts a slight char, adding to the flavour and texture.
In a large bowl add the nuts, drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle on the spices. Use a large spoon to toss together until all the nuts are well coated with the olive oil and spices.
Scatter evenly in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes, stir and roast another 5 minutes. Times may vary depending on your oven so keep any eye on them and reduce the time if needed.
I used an old baking sheet that I didn't mind getting charred a bit. I find when using parchment paper for a recipe like this, they don't get as toasted as I would like them to be.
👨🏻🍳 Recipe tips
Top Tip: roasting the keto spiced nuts with olive oil is a nice way to add some flavour but also to get them crispy. You can use a more neutral oil but for this recipe I chose an oil that most people may have in their kitchen.
Tip: use raw unsalted nuts for this recipe, otherwise do not use salt if already salted. If using roasted nuts you can cut the oven time in half.
- Serving: serve as a snack with your favourite beverage or cocktail. These roasted spiced nuts are best served warm (lightly cooled) out of the oven.
- Storage: store in an airtight container or freezer bag in a cool dark place for up to 2 weeks. You can freeze up to a month is a tightly sealed bag.
- Portion: Use small sandwich bags to portion out the nuts so that you don't overeat them as they can be very tempting.

💭 Frequently asked questions
You should start to smell them and they may start crackling. Depending on the nuts used it may take more or less time than the recipe shows. Just don't over roast them.
You may not have used enough oil to nut ratio. If you prefer to use butter that might work better. I wanted to keep this recipe vegan so everyone may enjoy at a holiday party.
