Blue Cheese Dressing Walnuts
    I originally wanted to make these with powdered blue cheese dressing mix, only to find that there is no such thing, at least not in my grocery stores. So I tried using liquid dressing instead. It didn’t end up tasting a lot like blue cheese, but it did end up tasting really good.
     
4 cups (400 g) walnuts
½ cup (120 ml) blue cheese salad dressing
1 teaspoon garlic salt
    Combine the walnuts and dressing in your slow cooker. Stir until the nuts are evenly coated with the dressing. Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it cook for 3 hours, stirring once halfway through.
    Stir in the garlic salt just before serving.
    Yield: 16 servings
    Each with 8 g protein, 4 g carbohydrate, 2 g dietary fiber, 2 g usable carbs.
Maple-Glazed Walnuts
3 cups (300 g) walnuts
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon (14 g) butter, melted
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
cup (78 ml) sugar-free pancake syrup
cup (8 g) Splenda, divided
    Put the walnuts in your slow cooker.
    In a bowl, mix together the cinnamon, butter, salt, vanilla extract, pancake syrup, and ¼ cup (6 g) of the Splenda. Pour the mixture over the nuts and stir to coat. Cover the slow cooker, set it to low, and let it cook for 2 to 3 hours, stirring every hour or so.
    Then uncover the slow cooker and cook, stirring every 20 minutes, until the nuts are almost dry. Stir in the remaining Splenda, cook for another 20 minutes, and then remove from the slow cooker and cool. Store in an airtight container.
    Yield: 9 servings
    Each with 10 g protein, 6 g carbohydrate, 2 g dietary fiber, 4 g usable carbs. Analysis does not include polyol in sugar-free syrup.
Dana’s Snack Mix
    You can buy shelled sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds in bulk at most natural food stores, and you should be able to get raw cashew pieces there, too. For variety, try adding 2½ cups (75 g) of low-carb garlic croutons along with the seeds and nuts.
     
6 tablespoons (84 g) butter
3 tablespoons (45 ml) Worcestershire sauce
1½ teaspoons garlic powder
2½ teaspoons seasoned salt
