Honey Roasted Cashews

March 22, 2012

I have some family in town, so I thought I would make some quick and simple honey roasted cashews to have around for snacking. All you need is a handful of ingredients and about 20 minutes of time to whip up a batch.


I love cashews and I usually like them raw, but these honey roasted ones have a sweet and salty thing going on that makes them undeniably delicious.


If you are into sweet and salty snacks, I suggest you try this recipe! Walnuts and almonds also work well if you don’t love cashews like I do.

Happy snacking!

Honey Roasted Cashews
Adapted from

2 cups raw cashews
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons sunflower oil

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the cashews on an unlined rimmed baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cashews are lightly golden and you can smell them. Let the nuts cool. Meanwhile, whisk together the sugar and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

In a medium saucepan, combine the honey, water, and sunflower oil. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and then add the roasted cashews. Cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently, until the cashews are coated and there is no excess honey-water-oil mixture in the pan.

Transfer the honey coated nuts to the bowl with the reserved sugar and salt mixture and mix until all the nuts are coated. Spread the nuts out in a single layer on a piece of wax paper or a Silpat mat and let the nuts cool completely.

Makes about 2 cups.
