What You Will Love About This Low-Carb Honey Glazed Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Baking Sheet – This perfect vegetable dish is so simple that you hardly even make any dishes! Grab a parchment or silicone-lined baking sheet for roast and a medium bowl to toss everything together and you’re all set!


Brussels Sprouts – Brussels sprouts are a sensational way to get your leafy greens, especially when enhanced with this sweet honey glaze!

One reason eating leafy greens like brussels sprouts is so important is because of their high folate content. Folate is an essential nutrient that helps our cells divide and promote positive brain and nervous health.

Olive Oil – A touch of healthy cooking fat saves your sprouts from sticking to the pan and helps them get nice and crispy.

Honey – Who said low-carb means no honey!? If you watch your carb count regularly and keep within healthy limits, a little honey is okay; plus, you can find amazing sugar-free honey easily at your local grocery store! It’s a delectable low-carb alternative to traditional honey.

Apple Cider Vinegar – The key to a great meal is to balance salt, acid, heat, and sweetness to make a harmonious bite. That is why you need this fruity acid to center the flavor in this bold dish. Apple cider vinegar has a terrific fruity yet acidic taste that goes perfectly with the honey in this dish.

Apple cider vinegar is more than just a great acidic flavor, it also has a multitude of healthy benefits. It is loaded with everything from enzymes to antioxidants to help your body from head to toe; however, if you don’t have this healthy vinegar on hand, try using another fruity vinegar, like red wine or champagne vinegar.

Ground Chili Flakes – Ground chili flakes bring the heat to this sweet and spicy recipe! These potent flakes of dried chili peppers bring plenty of peppery punch to the dish. Even though it’s just a seasoning, these spicy flakes actually bring some iron and potassium to the meal for health.

Sea Salt and Pepper – With such a great sweet and spicy glaze the only seasonings you will need are sea salt and pepper.

Parmesan Cheese – Finishing this plate with a dusting of deliciously aged parmesan cheese adds to the appearance and taste of the dish. You can also use cotija cheese or nutritional yeast as a substitute for this tasty garnish.

Spring Onion – Spring onion has a great fresh onion flavor especially when enjoyed raw. You can substitute spring onion for green onion if needed.

Expert Notes

  • If you have a little extra time, allow the brussels to sit in the hot honey marinade for 15 to 30 minutes. This gives the sweet and spicy flavor even more time to develop deliciousness.
  • This Low-Carb Honey Glazed Brussels Sprouts recipe is best when enjoyed warm with the simple touch of parmesan and spring onions. Pair them up with your favorite main dish and low-carb grain.
  • Any leftovers of these yummy brussels sprouts can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. They can be reheated in the microwave, air fryer, or oven.
