Perfectly Roasted and (Lightly) Salted Nuts

Nuts are one of my “go to” snacks that keep me satiated and provide a good source of healthy fats, protein, fiber as well as vitamins and minerals. They are also on my list of anti-inflammatory snacks to support my joint health.

Most of the time, I choose raw nuts. Occasionally, however, it is fun to change things up and have a treat of roasted nuts! Unfortunately, when searching the grocery store, it can be hard to find a delicious roasted nut that doesn’t have a lot of added sugars or other strange ingredients. This recipe to the rescue!!

I have found a great way to roast nuts so that just the right amount of salt sticks to them perfectly every time.

The recipe only takes 15 minutes, plus cooling time, so roast a batch on the weekend to have handy for snacking. Once cooled, they keep well in a glass jar on the counter.

Perfectly Roasted and (Lightly) Salted Nuts

The secret to getting the salt to stick to your nuts is in rinsing them before roasting. Try this recipe with your favourite nut or nut mix.
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 17 minutes
Servings 4


  • 4 cups nuts  I use almonds or pecans
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place nuts in a strainer and rinse well with filtered water. Make sure you get all the nuts wet as it is the water that helps the salt to stick.
  • Place rinsed nuts in a bowl and toss well with sea salt.
  • Spread tossed nuts on parchment paper and place in oven for 8 minutes, then stir them to ensure all sides get evenly dried, and roast for another 7 minutes. Keep watch during the last few minutes because if you have a hotter oven, you nuts might be done sooner. You don't want the nuts to burn!
  • Remove from oven and stir in olive oil if desired (keep stirring until all nuts are evenly coated). Let nuts cool on the pan before eating. Enjoy!
