How to Make Crunchy Peanut Snacks – Peanut Burger Snack


  • 2 cups of Roasted groundnuts
  • 1/2  cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornflour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder or nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavor (Optional)
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • Vegetable oil for frying

 Method of Preparation Peanut Snacks

  1. First of all, pour the roasted groundnuts/peanuts into a saucer or wide bowl and separate all split or broken peanuts.
  2. Secondly, mix all dry ingredients together – the all-purpose flour, cornflour, baking powder, sugar, and nutmeg, set aside.
  3. Thirdly, break the eggs into a deep bowl, add flavor and whisk until foamy. Scoop in 2-spoons of the dried mixture of flour and continue to whisk until a batter consistency is slightly runny.  
  4. Start by adding 1-2 spoons of egg batter consistency on the dry groundnut/peanut. After that shake in a circular shifting/motion before sprinkling about 2-3 spoons of the flour mixture as you shake.
  5. The peanut will likely stick together when shaking; use a knife or hand to separate and more sprinkle dry flour mixture. And continue as the peanuts form a ball shape.
  6. This process should continue for about 3-4 times until well coated into a proper ball shape or oval shape. When the peanuts are well coated they look smooth; transfer on a sieve to remove excess flour lying at the button ready to fry.
  7. Finally, in a deep frying pan bring the oil to heat; stir in the first batch of your peanuts and fry with continuous stirring for 5-7 minutes until balls turn a golden color. Repeat the process until you finish frying all coated peanuts.
  8. Remove from heat into a sieve lined with a paper towel to drain the oil and completely cold; store in a tight container.

At this point your delicious crunchy coated peanut snack is ready.

Serve and enjoy with a glass of chilled drink!

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe. Do i hsve to remove the shell of the groundnuts?
    And how can i store them during winter. The groundnuts in my peanuts burger got soft and this is the first time it is happening so i am thinking it is because I stored them in the fridge during winter

    1. Groundnuts should be removed from their shell, but you can make coated peanuts snacks with or without groundnuts brown skin
