Total Time 17 mins
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!
