Lemon Pepper Roasted Peanuts

A few weeks ago I made Chile Lime Spiced Peanuts. They were part of the 12 Days of Super Bowl Snacks because I wanted a nice mix of different appetizers. It was actually my first time ever roasting peanuts.

I don’t know why I never had tried it before because I do love salty snack foods like these. I suppose it was a good thing because I could not get over how easy it was to roast peanuts. Not only was it easy but they tasted so freaking amazing.

I now have a new addiction (like I need any more!!). I have been thinking about all the various spice mixes that would go well with peanuts. The chili lime was a hit.

These roasted peanuts have the tang of lemon and the spice of pepper. The recipe is easy to make and only take 20 minutes to roast in the oven.

Today’s peanuts are spiced with lemon and pepper and they are fantastic as well! If you like spiced peanuts you have got to give these a try, and my recommendation to you….. make a double batch. You will not regret it!

  1. These look delicious and such interesting flavors!

  2. What a great snack idea, these look delicious! 🙂

  3. My husband loves fiery peanuts like chipotle and jalapeno, but I am more into something less heated. These peanuts would be perfect for my tastes, so you definitely get a thumbs up for the flavor choice!

  4. Steve,
    I am seriously excited about trying this recipe. I have never seen the flavor of lemon and peanuts combined. It sounds WONDERFUL!

  5. Interesting! Never thought to combine the two, but I am pretty sure I’d munch and crunch non stop!

  6. I still can’t believe the big game is tomorrow! I still have no idea what I’m going to make…

  7. Hi Steve,
