If you are looking for a new low carb snack, try this maple bacon roasted nut mix. Bits of bacon scattered among roasted nuts that are flavored with maple make the perfect salty, sweet snack. Only 4.4g net carbs per serving.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees - cook bacon 30 minutes
325 for 20 minutes.
Lay the 6 pieces of bacon out on a cookie sheet. Place into preheated oven and cook for about 30 minutes until the bacon is crispy. Watch that it doesn't burn.
Take out the bacon, crumble it and set aside. Take the nuts and coat them with the maple syrup and sweetener.
Place the nuts on the cookie sheet and mix in the bacon grease. Spread the nuts evenly on the cookie sheet, turn the oven down to 325 degrees and bake for about 20 minutes until the nuts are nice and browned but not burnt.
Let cool down completely for a few hours so they can harden. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
NOTE: If not low carb, use real maple syrup in the same amount and disregard the extra sweetener.
You can use substitutes for the Lakanto maple syrup. Please read post for other ideas.
