    I have used a 450 degrees oven and roasted them for 15 to 20 minutes. Cooked just right.

    Great recipe. I thought I was going to need Sea Salt with it but did not need to add anything else because it tasted great as is. Will make this recipe again soon.

    Is butter, macadamia oil, or hazelnut oil and acceptable substitute for the oil/fat?

    I used macadamia oil if I recall correctly my first time making this @jkstrachn and it turned out great! Trying it with the coconut oil tonight for hubby’s sake since he’s a coconut fan…me, not sooo much but he’s had a long day at work so anything to make it better for him :)
