Roasting pecans in the oven is an easy way to enhance their natural flavor and bring out their crunchiness. Here's how to roast pecans in the oven:


  • 1 pound of raw pecan halves

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Spread the pecan halves in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  4. Sprinkle the salt over the pecans if desired.
  5. Roast the pecans in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are fragrant and lightly toasted.

  8. Serve the roasted pecans warm or at room temperature.
