This easy recipe for air fryer spicy roasted peanuts is the perfect snack! These air fried peanuts are a healthy snack idea that is crunchy and salty. They are great for a low carb or keto diet. I love making homemade roasted nuts in the air fryer for a delicious snack option.



2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 cups Raw Peanuts, unshelled
2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 Tbsp. Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp. Cholula Hot Sauce


Place parchment paper in a baking sheet and set aside.

Place all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and stir to coat the peanuts thoroughly. 

Pour the nut mixture into the air fryer and spread the peanuts around to create an even layer.

Air fry at 330 degrees for 11 minutes. 

Pour the peanuts onto a parchment lined baking sheet to cool.

Let the nuts cool completely before moving them to a sealed container or bag to store them.


If you want more or less spice you can change how much cayenne pepper and Cholula Hot Sauce you use.
