how to roast nuts in shell in oven

Roasting nuts in their shells in the oven can be a bit trickier than roasting shelled nuts, but it can be done. Here's how to roast nuts in their shells in the oven:


  • Raw nuts in their shells (such as almonds, pistachios, or walnuts)
  • Salt (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Spread the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. If you're roasting different types of nuts, you may want to use separate baking sheets for each type.
  3. Sprinkle salt over the nuts, if desired.
  4. Roast the nuts in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on the type of nut and the size of the nut. Keep a close eye on the nuts and check them frequently to make sure they don't burn.
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the nuts to cool for a few minutes.
  6. Crack open the shells and enjoy the roasted nuts.

Roasting nuts in their shells can be a bit more challenging than roasting shelled nuts, as the shells can make it more difficult to tell when the nuts are done. However, with a bit of practice and patience, you can achieve delicious results. Roasted nuts in their shells make a great snack or addition to trail mix.
