How to Make this Recipe

Step 2: Be sure to shake the pan halfway through baking to ensure even roasting.
Remove and let the nuts cool before sampling, you don’t want to burn the roof of your mouth! Trust me, I learned the hard way!
Recipe Notes + Tips
- I recommend using only the larger nuts in this recipe to allow for even roasting! Smaller nuts like pistachios and peanuts will not roast as evenly with larger nuts in this quick-roasting recipe.
- Feel free to vary your seasonings! If you like a little kick, sprinkle in some cayenne pepper!
- Craving a sweet? Sprinkle in a little cinnamon and teaspoon of sugar!

- I recommend using only the larger nuts (like pecans and Brazil) in this recipe to prevent burning the smaller varieties (like pistachios and peanuts), if you are doing a blend, and to allow for even roasting!
- You can sub in an alternative oil here; any neutral plant based oil will work like canola, vegetable, peanut, sunflower, avocado, etc.
- Keep an eye on your roasting nuts! This is a quick-cooking recipe and can turn south if you don’t stick nearby! So turn on an alarm, keep your oven light on (if you have it), and watch carefully. Once the nutty aroma is in the air, you know they’re ready to come out!
- If you’re feeling adventurous and want to turn this into a snack to keep you energized, feel free to add in your favorite trail mix add-ins! Dark chocolate chips, unsweetened banana chips, yogurt chips, dried cranberries, etc. The list goes on and on; make these roast nuts your own! (Make sure to let the nuts cool completely before adding any chips that can melt!)
