Roasted Peanuts in Air Fryer | EVENLY roasted, NUTTY flavored, and CRUNCHY PEANUTS

How to Dry Roast Peanuts in an Air Fryer
Hello Foodies,
       Roasted peanuts have always made one of my childhood favorite snacks and one that I remember my Aai(Mother) making often as I was growing up. I would smell their warm nutty flavor coming from the kitchen. My Aai used to gently toss pinches of salt in with the peanuts to coat.nRoasted peanuts are a healthy snack and are perfect to take on road trips, or days at the beach, nibbling while watching the game/movies, it just offers a quick source of protein. Since I bought an Air Fryer, I stopped buying roasted peanuts from the store.

Take that bag of raw dried peanuts to the next level by dry roasting them in the air fryer. It takes less than 10 minutes, and you'll be crunching on peanuts in no time. The only items you need are peanuts and an Air Fryer. You will always end up with EVENLY roasted, NUTTY flavor, and CRUNCHY  PEANUTS. We just love them!
