Pinon nuts are very hard to find, and is thrilled to share them with you! They are similar to pignolia nuts, but are roasted to perfection in the shell. One taste and you will realize what the fuss for these pinon nuts is all about! Also known as Indian nuts, they make a delicious snack that is roasted and unsalted.

Enjoy Pinon Nuts

To crack pinon nuts, we recommend spreading them out on a small towel, and then using a rolling pin to go over the nuts, breaking open their shells. Our roasted pinon nuts are a perfect treat for snacking or using in your recipes. Try them tossed in salads or prepared with vegetables like cauliflower or asparagus. They complement chicken and fish dishes well, too. Pinon nuts add a great nutty crunch to rice, risotto, or pasta dishes, and are wonderful for preparing a pesto sauce. They are also delicious in cookies and other sweet treats.

Health Benefits of Pinon Nuts

A single serving of pinon nuts provides a rich source of nutrients that can improve heart health, boost energy levels and promote weight loss. Enjoying pinon nuts as a snack also does wonders for your immune system and vision. Pinon nuts are a good source of monounsaturated fats which are associated with lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol levels and reducing the risk for heart disease. They are also rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium that help transport oxygen and energize the body. A rare source of pinoleic acid, pinon nuts promote a feeling of fullness that has proven effective in weight management. Vitamin A and lutein support good vision by protecting the retina and preventing cataracts. Pinon nuts are also plentiful in antioxidants and vitamin C to improve the body’s natural defense system against colds and illnesses.

About Pinon Nuts

The name pinon is derived from the Spanish term for pine nut. Pinon nuts are produced by the main species of pine tree in the United States. Pinon nut trees (Pinus edulis) grow wild in the southwestern United States and are much more rare than pine nuts from Europe or Asia. A good crop of pinon is only produced once every three to seven years so they are far less abundant than other varieties of pine nuts. Pinon nuts tend to be larger than regular pine nuts and have a signature smooth and sweet buttery taste. Pinon nuts are sometimes referred to as pinyon nuts or pinion nuts.

“The Indian nuts are fabulous! Our 80-something grandparents said the taste took them back over 60 years! These are THE authentic product.”

“Well, I received the "Indian Nuts" today and immediately brought them to my Mother who will be 96. She used to eat these by the thousands...but they were called (according to her) MONKEY NUTS. For everyone at NUTS ONLINE......Monkey Nuts are the same as Indian nuts. They were somewhat difficult for her to eat, at her age, so we may have to use a small tool to manually remove the nuts from their shell.......but oterwise, all is well...and thanks much!

“Indian nuts arrived just as promised. Had to turn on the front porch lights, but they DID arrive on time.
I'd love to say the nuts are awesome, but before I could get them opened, my wife confiscated them and told me I'd have to wait until Christmas. Oh well, I haven't had them since I was a little kid at Camp Nawakwa so I guess two more weeks won't hurt. I'm so looking forward to that nice sweet taste. A real pleasure doing business with you. Oh yes, just opening the box was a real trip. You folks must really enjoy your nutty work.
