Fructose Malabsorption Recipes: Roasted Peanuts

Roasted Peanuts__No Sugarless Gum

This may seem like a lame recipe, but after roasting my own peanuts, I will never go back!  Whoever is out there doing the roasting for us has been doing a crap job of it.

I originally did it because I wanted to control the extra ingredients.  I didn’t like a lot of the offered oils in commercial peanuts, and usually the salt was either too much or too little.  But what I didn’t expect was a rich, full flavor that was more akin to peanut butter.  And they are deliciously fragrant!  I pack a small bag of them in my lunch and usually smell them before putting it away (if no one’s looking that is.  Weirdo!!!).


  • 1/2 lb of raw peanuts (they need to be RAW!)
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • sprinkle of sea salt


Preheat the oven to 350˚.

Spread the peanuts in a single layer on a baking sheet (I usually need two).

Add the water and salt and mix around, coating the peanuts evenly.

Put in the oven for 18-25 minutes, depending on desired doneness.

Let cool (the peanuts will continue to cook while left on the baking sheet).
