Tips and how-tos
How to roast peanuts
You can find unsalted dry roasted peanuts in most health food stores, or you can roast them yourself. Roasting peanuts deepens their flavor and gives them a crisper texture.
Here is how to do it:
- Preheat oven to 180 °C.
- Spread the peanuts in an even layer on the baking sheet.
- Place in oven and roast for 15-20 minutes (depending on which type of peanut you’re roasting, cooking times might slightly vary).
- Stir or shake the tray every 3-4 minutes to help the peanuts to cook evenly.
- If they are done baking, the skin should be loose and the peanuts should be golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and immediately transfer onto a plate or another baking sheet.
Easy 3-Ingredient Peanut Balls are:
- Whole-food plant-based
- Refined sugar-free
- Quick and easy to make
