If you love groundnuts you would loooove Peanut Burger Snack. This is a snack made by coating groundnuts otherwise known as peanuts with flour and other ingredients.
Oh my! Does deliciousness come any better than this? Peanut Burger is so crunchy, slightly sweet, nutty and so addicting!

Warning: these little balls of food ecstasy won’t last long after you make them. You might start making them every week! I’m not complaining, though.
Peanut Burger Snack in a bowl
Peanut Burger is a well-known snack in Nigeria and Ghana. I first fell in love with the commercial brand version in Nigeria. I could never get enough of it.
It was fast gaining popularity in Cameroon before I left. It is colloquially called “peanuts” there. I could see it in so many stores and snack stands.
I don’t know if that is still the case. Are “Peanuts” still so popular in pays? Please let me know below if you are in Cameroon right now.
So a while ago I got a couple of requests to do a recipe for this. I was mad at myself for not making this in a long time… over two years! Why Precious, why??? I repent.
Making Peanut Burger Snack could be time-consuming but it is quite easy and the taste pays for the time. I promise.
All you need is some raw peanuts. Then you coat the peanuts with some flour, eggs, sugar salt and nutmeg if you like. Viola, peanut burger!

This is a snack made by coating raw groundnuts/peanuts with flour then deep frying. It is very tasty and "peanutty".
Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 50 minutes
Servings: 24 pieces


  • 2 cups of flour (250 grams)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of sugar (66.7 grams)
  • 2 cups of raw groundnuts aka peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg optional
  • A pinch of salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Put your groundnuts in a bowl and select to take out all the bad ones.
  • Mix together flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt and set aside.
  • Beat eggs together with sugar in another bowl.
  • Pour a little of the egg mixture over the groundnuts. Shake bowl until mixture coats all the groundnuts.
  • Sprinkle some of the flour mixture over the groundnuts and shake.
  • Repeat 4 and 6 above until groundnuts are completely coated with flour. If some stick together, use your fingers to separate them and keep going.
  • Heat oil on medium heat and fry in batches until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely then you can serve or store in an airtight container.


It is okay to have some flour at the base of your bowl when coating the groundnuts. Make sure you separate the nuts from the flour before frying.

  1. Hello ma ….thanks for ure recipes…. Pls can i use sieve instead of bowl to coat the groundnut and how hot should the oil be?

  2. Hi ma’am thank you very much for this recipe I tried mine it came out so well but the groundnut is still raw why is that? And pls can heavy coating make the groundnut not to fry well

    1. Hi Kay, it could be that your oil was to hot so the coating cooked quickly without the groundnut cooking on the inside.

      1. Hi precious, I made mine and it turned out real nice, sweet and crunchy, but it had a lot of black particles which weren’t there before frying. What could be the cause?

  3. Thanks a lot Ma…it was really helpful
    After blanching the groundnut and it gets dry, can we peel the back before coating…did u coat it with back?

    1. Hi Onyinye, to prevent that you add more flour to separate them. Sometimes I use my hands to separate some. Hope this helps.
