Keto Cinnamon Sugar Glazed Macadamia Nuts


The other day, we were eating some macadamia nuts and if you have been following our website, you might know by now that we love everything and anything Hawaiian – including macadamia nuts! 

But like anyone else, we can only eat so many salted macadamia nuts before it starts to go stale on the palate.  So that’s when we started to venture out and think of different ways to enjoy macadamia nuts. 

We came up with a couple of ideas, but the one that we were really interested in was a cinnamon flavored macadamia nut.  Now, interesting enough, we personally have never seen this flavor used for macadamia nuts but couldn’t see how this pairing would be nothing short of delicious! 

So the next day, we scoured through our pantry to find all the necessary ingredients and went to work!  We mixed a couple of batches adjusting the ratio as we went, and came out with this super easy and delicious version of macadamia nuts! 

It only takes minutes to make and a perfect sweet alternative from the original salted version – you can have your flavor palates thank us later!

For this dish, the only special ingredient you would need is Swerve/Monkfruit, which you can pick up on Amazon or at a local specialty supermarket.
