Here's a quick and cool way (with minimal clean-up) to toast nuts and seeds, based on information I received from Linda Gossett, MPA, CFCS, Extension Educator - EFNEP, University of Idaho. This has become my favorite method for toasting smaller amounts of nuts and seeds!
This method works well for amounts ranging from a tablespoon to 1/2 cup. With larger amounts, some are likely to turn dark quicker than others. The time will vary depending on the size, type and temperature of the nuts/seeds and also may be influenced by the type of microwave.
Here's a handy, fast way to toast chopped nuts for a recipe without turning on your oven on a sweltering hot summer day:
Craft a simple, 1-sheet thick mini-tray out of aluminum foil to fit on top of your toaster slots. Sprinkle your chopped nuts on the tray, and push down your toaster button. Makes great toasted nuts fast. Saves a) time, b) saves you from oven heat, and, for all you frugal thrifty types, c) saves electricity! I use a Medium setting, but experiment to fine tune the results on your toaster.

Toasting nuts or oatmeal before adding them to cookies enhances the flavor. Put them in a shallow pan and toast in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes. Stir them every 5 min so they don't burn.
