Honey Roasted Cashews are sweet and a little salty. These nuts are perfect for a quick snack and super easy to make! Also they are WAY better tasting than store bought and not to mention better for you.

I haven’t met a nut I didn’t like, but what is it about cashews? You sit down with a bag of them and before you know you can’t stop stuffing your face with them. Honestly I could easily eat this whole batch without thinking twice about it.  I love them that much!

You may want to make a double batch and hide some for yourself because these will go fast. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 🙂

Preheat your oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment. Combine the honey, maple syrup and butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 25-30 seconds until butter is melted.

Next add the salt, cinnamon and vanilla and stir.

Then pour the honey/maple syrup mixture over the cashews and stir until completely coated.

Finally, dump the coated nuts on to the lined baking sheet and spread out evenly. Bake for 6 minutes, remove and stir. Spread the cashews into another single layer and bake again for 6 minutes. The honey/maple glaze gets thick and sticky in the oven and coats the nuts as you toss them.

After being in the oven they should smell toasty and they should be a light golden brown.

If you can resist the urge to unhinge your jaw and inhale them all, then I highly suggest letting them cool completely and store them in a glass jar with an airtight lid.
