Sometimes it’s hard to find a good crunchy snack while living a ketogenic lifestyle. Almost all chips are too full of carbs or sugar, and there is a lack of a good keto cereal.

There aren’t a lot of options.

Fortunately, keto cinnamon sugar pork rinds are here are they are amazing!! Now, I know what you’re thinking, and trust me, they are not weird at all! We really don’t like pork rinds but we LOVE these cinnamon sugar pork rinds! If you weren’t the one making them, you probably would have no clue that these are actually pork rinds!

Maybe the best thing about this delicious treat is that it contains absolutely zero carbs and zero sugars (because, of course, the “sugar” in this recipe is monkfruit)! That means that you can absolutely satisfy your craving for something crunchy without racking up carbs! This will absolutely be your favorite go-to snack or sweet treat.

Cinnamon Sugar Pork Rinds are the perfect fall or winter time treat as they are full of delicious cinnamon goodness! Enjoy this low carb treat with a hot cup of coffee, Keto Eggnog, or whatever your favorite fall/cold weather drink may be, you can check my current favorite drink at the Orangina Website

What Are Pork Rinds?

Pork rinds are kind of weird, I know. Pork rinds are fried or roasted pig skin, which I know, doesn’t sound all that appetizing. If you can get over the thought of it, they are actually pretty great for living a ketogenic lifestyle. I don’t love the taste, but anything covered in cinnamon and sweetener is great! You really won’t be able to tell that they were pork rinds once you add the ingredients in! In our opinion, it completely changes the taste and it is a game changer!

Not only can pork rinds taste great, but they can also be a great part of a ketogenic diet. Pork rinds are high in fat and protein and contain zero carbs or sugars!

Best Ways To Eat This Snack

This snack is great by itself, but it can be enjoyed in more ways than one!

Some of the ways we like to enjoy keto cinnamon sugar pork rinds include:

  • Keto cereal – okay look, I know that sounds weird. But as long as you don’t think of it as “pork rind” cereal, it’s actually really great! Instead, think of it as a typical cinnamon crunch cereal! You honestly can’t tell the difference.
  • Fried ice cream – instead of breading your ice cream in a typical cinnamon cereal, these cinnamon sugar pork grinds would make for a great keto friendly alternative!

    How can these be stored and for how long? I’d hate to turn on oven for every bag. And I’d hate to eat the whole bag in 1 sitting! They sound like great substitute for the Cinnamon Twists at Taco Bell. Thank you

    • Kasey

      These can be stored in an air tight container. They are best enjoyed within the first few weeks!

  • Emily

    These are so good! Hard to get the perfect crispy/gooey combo, but they’re delicious!

  • Darlene

    OMG this is sooooo good! I used to like Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, this tastes just as good. And I really don’t like Pork Rinds at all. This is one of my go to breakfasts from now on. Love it! Thank you so much!

  • Janet Peterson

    I will definitely have to try this recipe! This probably sounds gross, but for a quickie snack I like to take sour cream, stir in some sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon, and dip my plain pork rinds in it. Sometimes, I add a bit of softened cream cheese to this mixture. You can add a few blueberries or strawberries. It reminds me of cheesecake. Or, go savory and add jalapenos, bacon and cream cheese for a quickie “deconstructed” popper for those “gotta have it now” times.

  • Glenda Thompson

    I usually pass on most recipes because they all seem so complicated and time consuming. I had an opened half bag of sort of stale pork rinds sitting in the pantry (I usually use them as a coating) I figured it would try this out. It was quick, simple and OMG yummy!. Even though they had been going stale, this crisped them right back up and gave me a yummy treat. Thank you!!

  • Teresa

    The oven temperature of 225 degrees, is that celsius or fahrenheit?

  • Judith Martin

    These are so good! I too am a Cinnamon Toast Crunch fan. Wrinkled my nose at the idea of pork rinds, but glad I tried it because these taste great. I know they’ll be a staple in my house.

  • Chelene Landis

    I was wondering how they can be 0 carbs when you are using a sweetener?

    • Kasey

      They are 0 net carbs. The sugar alcohols are subtracted from total carbs.
