I am “Nuts Over Cinnamon!” Cinnamon is known to be a good blood sugar stabilizer and I use it on almost everything sweet. I always love the smell of the cinnamon nuts at the mall but they can be loaded with sugar. I paired a sugar substitute with cinnamon and nuts for a quick snack that won’t kill your healthy ambitions. Additionally, nuts have protein, are high in good fats, and digest slowly. Below is my Sugar-Free Roasted Cinnamon Nut recipe:
3 C Nuts (almonds, pecans, cashews, or walnuts)
1 Egg White
1/2 tsp Salt
1 and 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 C Baking Splenda
Coat a baking sheet or pan with cooking spray. I place aluminum foil on top of the pan for easy cleaning. Bake at 275 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes.
