Keto Sweet ‘N Salty Nut Clusters
I’ve been wanting to make a version of no bake nut clusters for some time now and as we get closer to the holiday season, the time was right!
During the sugar and chocolate high season is when treats like this sure come in handy!
You can make ahead and freeze them to have on hand when needed.
Ingredients you need for Keto Nut Clusters
Note: You can use any of your favorite nuts and seeds! I used:
- Pecan pieces
- Walnut pieces
- Sugar free chocolate chips
- Hemp hearts
- Chia seeds
- Shredded coconut (unsweetened)
- A granulated natural sweetener like So Nourished sweetener
- Honey (for the paleo people) or Sukrin Honey Alternative Syrup (optional, see notes in recipe card)
- Coconut Oil
- Rock Salt or Kosher Salt
- These super cute little silicone candy holders (or just put them on parchment paper)
Which Nuts are Lowest in Carbs?
I always want to use cashews but they are among the highest carb nuts! So sad.
The nuts lowest in carbs are pecans, walnuts, macadamias, hazelnuts and almonds.
Higher carb nuts are cashews, chestnuts and pistachios.
Chia seeds, flax seeds and hemp seeds are lowest in carbs when it comes to seeds.
If you do switch up the nuts and seeds in this recipe be sure to use a tool like carbmanager.com to recalculate the nutritional values.

Sukrin Fiber Syrup or Sukrin Honey Alternative. This is a thick heavy syrup similar to the consistency of honey. It can be hard to find so if you cannot find it, use a bit more more coconut oil to firm up the clusters. Do not substitute with a thin sugar free syrup.
