  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread peanuts out on a large baking sheet.
  2. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the shells are browned. Watch carefully, the peanuts brown rather suddenly. When cool enough to touch, break open the shells and eat!

Someone mistakenly gave us a bag of raw peanuts that he thought were roasted. What to do with nasty, raw peanuts? Allrecipes to the rescue! My peanuts only took about 13 minutes to roast. Warm, fresh roasted peanuts--yum! I might even consider deliberately buying raw peanuts in the future.



Good recipe! It's best to stir once during roasting so that all peanuts are evenly roasted. Thanks!



Quick, easy way to roast some peanuts. The package of raw peanuts only had a recipe for boiling 'em. Thanks for sharing this, they were at hit at work.
