Ranch Roasted Nuts

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. 

That’s it! 

Let these cool and then you’re ready to dig in!

      I haven’t tried, but it probably could so long as the heat is low enough not to burn the nuts.

  1. Mike Gibson

    Do you think you could use an air fryer and just shake the basket every 3-4 minutes? Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Karly Campbell

      I would probably turn the air fryer down to 300, if it goes that low. Nuts do burn pretty easily, so that’s all I’d be concerned about. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’ve made this recipe several times now but the last time I made it I used smoked paprika. It was a game changer! So delicious!

    1. Ashley, I love the idea of using smoked paprika! Did you omit any of the other spices?

  3. Thank you for your recipe. One of the hidden carbs is in the garlic powder and maybe even the onion powder. If you are trying to keep the carbs down look as substituting granulated over the powders. The additives to keep the powder from sticking increases the carbs from a couple to 17g.

    1. Karly Campbell

      As far as I can tell, they have the same nutrition values as long as you’re buying a good quality powder without any fillers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Karly Campbell

      I used salted nuts, but I like my snacks with a good bit of salt on them. I’d just taste and add it if you like.

      1. Karly Campbell

        I would remove the shell as most of the seasoning would be on the shell rather than the pistachio.

  4. You can make the carbs lower by omitting cashews and pistachios. They are higher carb nuts.
    Macadamia, almond, walnut, pecan, and peanuts are lower carb choices.
