  • Air Fryer


  • 3 cups peanuts I used lightly salted cocktail peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon salt divided
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • In a large mixing bowl combine peanuts, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and vegetable oil. Ensure peanuts are well coated.
  • Pour the peanut mixture into the air fryer basket.
  • Set your Air Fryer at 350 degrees F on manual setting and cook for 15 minutes or until roasted.
  • Place the peanut mixture in a baking sheet or a large plate then mix in the last 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I like to let the peanuts cool off until they are room temperature.
  • Serve and Enjoy!


 We prefer the roasted peanuts cooled off before enjoy them.
