Yes, you can roast nuts in an air fryer. In fact, roasting nuts in an air fryer is a quick and easy way to get evenly roasted nuts with a crispy texture.
To roast nuts in an air fryer, simply spread the nuts in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Preheat the air fryer to 325°F (160°C) and set the timer for 8-12 minutes, depending on the type and quantity of nuts you're roasting. Stir the nuts every 2-3 minutes to ensure even roasting and prevent burning.
Check the nuts frequently towards the end of the roasting time to avoid over-roasting. The nuts are done when they are fragrant and golden brown. Once the nuts are roasted to your desired level of doneness, remove the basket from the air fryer and transfer the nuts to a bowl or plate to cool.
It's important to monitor the nuts closely to avoid burning or over-roasting, and different types of nuts may require different roasting times and temperatures, so adjust the time and temperature accordingly. Also, be aware that roasted nuts can be calorie-dense, so it's best to consume them in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
