These roasted za’atar nuts make the perfect snack. Now that I’m a uni student I’m in the need of lots of snacky food to keep my brain going while I read pages upon pages of books, articles and research papers.
So I thought I’d share with you this really easy and quick recipe that I’ve been making A LOT lately. Not only are these roasted nuts delicious but they’re also one of the only healthy snacks that I don’t get bored of.
For this recipe I’ve added some za’atar spice to the nuts to give them an interesting flavour. Za’atar is a very popular spice blend used in the North African and Arab cuisine. You can find it in most supermarkets in the spice isle or make it yourself (there is tons of za’atar recipes on the internet).

Roasted Za’atar Nuts
(Click on the stars to vote!)
- 200 g nuts personally I love using macadamias, almonds and cashews but other nuts work too
- 1/2 tsp olive oil
- 2 tsp za'atar
- salt to taste
- Preheat the oven to 160°C.
- Lay the nuts onto a baking tray and roast for 10-12 minutes at 160°C. Check after 8 minutes and give them a little shake if they roast on some places more easily than others.
- Once the nuts are roasted, take them out of the oven and transfer them into a bowl.
- Add the olive oil, za'atar and salt and mix well with the nuts. It's easiest to toss the nuts inside the bowl.
- Let the nuts cool down and enjoy!
