Nuts are a great option for a low carb snack and I made these roasted nuts extra flavorful with a homemade ranch seasoning! I could munch on these all day and they’re perfect for sitting out at parties. Guests love them!
A few weeks ago I sent out an email to my subscribers asking their one BIGGEST struggle with sticking to a low carb diet.
The overwhelming response was bread, followed closely by eating out and cooking for a family without needing to make two separate dinners.
I gave my solutions for those problems via email (including an exclusive bread recipe for email subscribers, my favorite foods to order from a variety of restaurants, and coupon code for a couple of my ebooks full of family friendly recipes).

The next biggest struggle I heard? SNACKS.
Low carb snacks are good to have on hand, because we all know how tough it is to stay on plan when you’re starving. If I let myself get too hungry, I’m often tempted to grab something that is full of carbs.
These roasted nuts are coated in a simple homemade ranch seasoning (I just used the spices from my homemade ranch dressing!) so the nuts are bursting with flavor!
I like to keep little baggies of these nuts ready to grab and go when I need a sneak. Measure them out and store them in individual snack bags so you won’t have to worry about over-eating!
How to make these roasted nuts:
I started with a can of mixed nuts, but you could really use any variety nut that you like. I just like variety.
Add the nuts to a mixing bowl and drizzle on some avocado oil. I really like avocado oil because it’s a neutral tasting, healthy oil that can withstand high heats.
Start sprinkling on your spices – you’ll need garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, chives, dill, and salt.
Stir everything well and then spread the nuts out on a large baking sheet and pop them in a hot oven.
These roast in about 20 minutes, but be sure to give the pan a stir every 5 minutes to keep your nuts from burning.
Let these cool and then you’re ready to dig in!
