What are keto clusters?
Keto clusters are a keto-friendly treat that feature a variety of keto-approved ingredients! I know, that sounds purposefully vague… because it is! Haha. For specifics, let’s focus on today’s recipe: keto clusters.
Today’s keto clusters are keto nut clusters. That means that we’re gonna be mixing together some keto nuts plus keto-approved sweetener and a few simple ingredients, then baking them. After cooling, guess what you have? Super tasty low carb keto clusters!
How to Make Keto Clusters
First things first, preheat your oven to 325°F. Then grab some parchment paper and line a large baking sheet with it.
Add your favorite keto nuts, and the remaining two ingredients to a mixing bowl. Use a rubber spatula to stir and fold all the ingredients together until everything is very well mixed. Just like that, you’ve made your keto nut cluster mixture!
Using a spoon, scoop this keto nut mixture onto the baking sheet. You want to create piles of keto nuts so they can bake together into sturdy, crunchy keto nut clusters. Leave some space in between each nut cluster so air can flow through.
Bake, Cool, & Enjoy
Bake clusters for about 20 minutes. Cool and enjoy the best keto nuts treat ever!!
The 3 ingredients you need
Ingredient 1: Keto Nuts
Ingredient 2: Blanched Almond Flour
Ingredient 3: Keto Honey
Best Keto Nuts to Use
Not all nuts were created carb-equal. That means that some nuts are better for a low carb, keto-friendly diet than others. Below, I’ll list the keto nuts by carb count, and then note my favorite ones to use in this recipe. You can also check out this keto nuts guide and this one and this one. 😉
Pecans – 4 carbs
100 grams of pecans has 4 net carbs. This nut has the least amount of carbs and is just straight up tasty! This is one of my favorite keto nuts to use in keto recipes.
Brazil Nuts – 4 carbs
Brazil nuts have 4 net carbs per 100 grams. This keto nut is low carb and has a bit of an unusual taste—some find it not so palatable, others find it very yummy. Try it for yourself and decide. [Here is where I get my brazil nuts.]
Macadamia – 5 carbs
Macadamia nuts have just 5 net carbs per 100 grams. They’re one of my favorite keto nuts to incorporate into baked keto recipes, or just simply snack on. [Click here to buy macadamia nuts.]
Hazelnuts – 7 carbs
Just 7 net carbs for 100 grams or 3.5 ounces of hazelnuts. Hazelnuts are low carb and have a distinct flavor that many, many people love—especially when mixed with chocolate!
Walnuts – 7 carbs
Peanuts – 8 carbs
Almonds – 9 carbs
Only 9 net carbs per 100 grams of almonds—that’s about 80 almonds. While 9 grams of net carbs seems like much more than the 4 grams in pecans, it’s still a low amount.
Pine Nuts – 9 carbs
Pistachios – 15 carbs
Cashews – 22 carbs
One of the tastiest keto nuts on the block, but one of the highest in carbs. For 100 grams, cashews have 22 net carbs. This makes them one of the trickiest nuts to crack, so to speak, for a keto recipe, but one that’s most worth it. Hint: they add such creaminess and soften a keto recipe so it’s just right. Check out my Vanilla Keto Ice Cream Recipe to see what I mean.
Ready to bake in minutes! This 3 ingredient keto nut clusters recipe is so easy to make and yields crispy, crunchy and chewy keto nut clusters.
How many carbs are in each keto cluster?
Glad you asked! Each keto cluster has just 1.8g of net carbs, as long as you use the lowest carb nuts! If you use keto nuts with a higher carb count, you know what that means–the net carbs go up. I recommend checking out the “Best Keto Nuts to Use” section higher up in this post for the best, well, keto nuts to use. 😉

- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside for later.
- Add all ingredients to a large bowl: keto nuts, almond flour and keto honey. Using a rubber spatula, fold until well mixed. This is the keto honey I used.
