Evening snack - Roasted Salted Monkey Peanuts.
Salted peanuts are a satisfying snack, and when they're homemade, they taste even better and fresher than the store-bought version.
The recipe itself is pretty easy and I find myself making it just so that Mr.M and I can have some sitting around and watching T.V.📺
And also, Snacking on dry-roasted peanuts can help you feel satisfied between meals, and you'll get some nutrients, like iron, that will help sustain your energy levels.

Quantity: Serves 8
1kg in-shell raw peanuts
30ml peanut oil
1 to 2 tsps salt
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
- Rinse the peanuts under cool water to remove excess dirt. Pat dry and place in a large bowl and toss with the peanut oil and salt until well coated.
- Place on 2 half baking trays, making sure to spread them out into a single layer. Roast in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through cooking.
- Once you remove the peanuts from the oven, let them cool slightly before eating. They will continue to cook and become crunchy as they cool.
