Whole30 Sea Salt Roasted Pecans

As seen on our Whole30 Challenge: Day 24. Click to read more!

I've never been a big fan of nuts, especially not pecans, until I started roasting them, which really does bring out their flavor. I never realized how much better roasted pecans tasted compared to just eating them straight out of the bag. I now roast a big batch and serve them on everything from salads to sweet potatoes to fruit, or even as a healthy snack.

This version is so easy and only takes 5 minutes!

Whole30 Sea Salt Roasted Pecans

INGREDIENTS:

  • pecans

  • avocado oil spray (or olive oil spray)

  • sea salt

STEPS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil (to minimize cleanup).

  3. Place almonds on baking sheet.

  4. Spray almonds with avocado oil spray (or olive oil spray) and lightly sprinkle with sea salt.

  5. Bake for 5 minutes.

TIP:

  • Many times, you can find this avocado spray at HomeGoods or Marshalls for $4.99, which beats the $9.99 price in many grocery stores. You can also find it online for under $5 too.
