Answer: Peanuts aren’t the most keto-friendly nut, but a small amount is acceptable.
A 2 oz serving of peanuts contains 7.6 g of net carbs. While many better keto snacks exist, the healthy fats in peanuts help you feel full longer. Two tablespoons contain about 24% of the magnesium you need in a day. Magnesium is one of seven essential macrominerals, and adequate intake strengthens your bones.
One caveat for peanuts: be careful if you buy peanut products like honey-roasted peanuts or peanut butter because they often contain more sugar than plain peanuts.
For a more keto-friendly nut, try pecans or brazil nuts.
