Who doesn’t love spiced nuts? Typically, they just make an appearance in my life around the holidays and are the type that are normally covered in sugar and cinnamon. Now, don’t get me wrong, obviously those are delicious but they’re not keto friendly. These low-carb and keto friendly BBQ Roasted Almonds on the other hand are absolutely perfect and worth keeping a jar around for when those crunchy snack cravings hit.

We’re also going a step further and activating the almonds by soaking them for 12 hours. This helps to break them down to allow for better digestion and mineral absorption. After that you’ll simply drain off the water, pat them dry, and toss with a little olive oil and the BBQ spice mixture before placing them in a warm oven to dehydrate. Once the process is done you’ll have a perfectly crunchy and smoky snack to munch on.
