Tips for roasting cashews

  • Ensure that the cashews are fully coated in the honey mixture. That way they will brown and caramelize all over, and every bite will be delicious!
  • Place the cashews in a single layer on your baking sheet. If they are piled on top of each other, they won’t roast evenly.
  • Let them cool before storing. Once you take the cashews out of the oven, let them sit, undisturbed for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the honey to solidify.
  • Add more seasonings. These honey roasted cashews are delicious as they are, but feel free to add a little cayenne to make them sweet and spicy, or some salt for a more savory edge.

Frequently asked questions

How long do they keep?

Once the roasted cashews and coconut have cooled completely, place them in an airtight jar or conatiner. They will keep well at room temperature for up to two weeks. They are a great homemade food gift idea for the holidays!

Are they vegan?

Because these roasted cashews are coated with honey, they aren’t strictly vegan. You can replace the honey with maple syrup if you like. I haven’t tried them this way, but I’m sure they’ll turn out just as good! Let me know if you try this in the comments below!

What are the best cashews to use?

Use roasted unsalted cashews for this recipe. I like buying them in bulk at the grocery store.
