Smoked Dee’s Nuts

These smoked almond recipes are an ode to my bestie, Danielle, who lives in CO and is also enjoying the keto lifestyle! One of her all time fave snacks are nuts. Peanuts are her favorite, but I had a ton of almonds on hand and thought they would be so delicious seasoned and smoked. I can’t wait for her to come visit so we can curl up on the couch with a glass of wine, some salami and cheese, and a little bowl of these delicious almonds and catch up!! I miss her something fierce!

*You can also roast all of these in the oven if you don’t want to smoke them or don’t have a smoker. Set oven to 300* and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring nuts with spatula every 10 minutes.*

**All of these would work great with pecans or walnuts, as well, which are an even better option if you are doing keto!**
