Sweet and Spicy Almonds Recipe for Low Carb and Keto Diets

Here’s a sweet and spicy almonds recipe for low carb dieters. Sweet and spicy is one of my favorite flavor combinations – the two flavors go together so well. The traditional spiced nuts recipe is chock full of sugar though, making it out of bounds for low carb and keto dieters.

Using granulated Splenda to replace the sugar was a great first step. Adjust the cayenne to your own spiciness level. These are medium in heat so go from there. Don’t reduce too much though as the nuts will become too sweet. They help to balance each other out.
