I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.
Snacks are everything when you are on a low carb diet. And if you don’t have something low carb to nosh on when you are feeling snacky, then you are sunk. Take it from me.
So today I’m going to share a very basic recipe for honey roasted peanuts.
It’s the kind of snack you would buy at the concession stand at a movie theater. So of course I have the “Let’s All Go to the Lobby” song stuck in my head. (video below) I could watch those snacks hotfoot it to the Lobby all day.
These low carb honey roasted peanuts are not, strictly speaking, made from peanuts and honey. I used Swerve’s new brown sugar substitute to sweeten the nuts. And it worked out great. You’ll have a tasty handful of sweet roasted peanuts with only 3g net carb.
So let’s all go to the Lobby, and get ourselves a treat.
