Vegan Keto Cacao Dusted Roast Hazelnuts



  1. Whisk together cocoa powder, Confectioner's Swerve, espresso powder and cinnamon in a small heatproof bowl or container, preferably with a secure lid. Set aside.

  2. Roast hazelnuts in a medium skillet over medium heat, shaking or stirring frequently. When hazelnuts begin to brown and become fragrant, transfer to the container with the cacao mixture.

  3. Stir or shake well until nuts are coated (the cacao mixture will adhere in a thin layer to the hot nuts, but there will be some of the cocoa mixture left over). Allow to cool completely before serving.
