  • 2 cups raw whole cashews
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or ghee
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, honey, olive oil, or ghee.  Heat in microwave for about 30 seconds to warm up honey.  Time will vary depending on your microwave.  Add salt.  Stir to combine ingredients.

  3. Spread coated cashews onto the prepared baking sheet in an even layer.

  4. Bake for six minutes.  Toss the nuts with a spatula.  Put back in the oven.

  5. After an additional six minutes, the roasted honey cashews should be done, lightly browned and toasted.  Take out of the oven and toss with the coconut sugar making sure to coat all the nuts.  If it is easier, place them in a bowl and toss with coconut sugar and then place back on a baking sheet.

  6. Leave on a baking sheet until cooled.  Store in an airtight container.  Should last several weeks.

Recipe Notes

*Optional add-ins:  vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, smoked paprika.

Tip:  Keep an eye on the nuts as they bake so they don't burn.  Ovens vary in temperature.
