Low Carb Keto Cinnamon Twists
At long last, I've found a use for pork rinds.
Ever since I started my low carb diet, I've been vaguely aware of pork rinds. A lot of low carb dieters go in for them, but I was pretty sure that they weren't for me. Too salty and too greasy, I thought.
But if you add a spoonful of cinnamon sugar, suddenly they become delightful.
A spoonful of sugar-free sugar, obviously. I learned this trick from the This Little Light of Mine blog. It's really quite transformative. The too salty becomes sweet and salty, a powerful combination if there ever was one. They remind me of those addictive cinnamon twists that Taco Bell makes. (Those things are good!)
All you need for this recipe are pork rinds, sweetener, cinnamon and butter.
So yea, it turns out that Mary Poppins was right.
A spoonful of sugar really does help the medicine go down. (In the most delightful way.)
