Salty peanuts oven-roasted and seasoned with Szechuan peppercorns, dried red chiles and a touch of honey. Best served with an ice-cold drink. #healthysnack #spicy #peanuts #Chinese #sweet #honey



220 g (~8 oz in weight) peanuts

2 tbsp honey

1 tbsp Szechuan peppercorns

15 dried chilis (cut in half and remove seeds)

sea salt


  1. Over low-medium heat in a wok or frying pan, toast together dried chiles, Szechuan peppercorns, and peanuts for about 5 minutes or until peanuts pick up some color and red chilis have darkened.
  2. Add 2 tbsp of honey and toss together until everything is evenly coated.
  3. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven at 175C/350F for 20-30 min or until golden brown.  You want the peanuts to have a crunchy coating, so if it is still gooey, cook longer.  Make sure to give a stir every 5 minutes or so to prevent burning.
  4. Once out of the oven, sprinkle with sea salt and let cool.
