Maple Honey Roasted Almonds and Cashews

Honey Roasted Almonds and Cashews

If you’ve ever walked past one of those holiday nut shops that’s making the cinnamon roasted almonds, you know the irresistible smells that it can create.  This recipe for honey roasted almonds and cashews can come pretty close.  Full credit for the original recipe goes to Simply Scratch and the tasty Honey Roasted Cashews.  I’ve simply added in almonds and bumped up the holiday flavors

The great thing is that this recipe is super simple and super quick.  End-to-end, it’s about 30 minutes total.  I used raw, un-roasted and un-salted nuts in this recipe.  My sense is that already roasted nuts won’t be as tasty, but let me know if you find otherwise.

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

  2. Melt the Butter, Syrup and Honey in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and then stir in the Vanilla, Nutmeg and Cinnamon

  3. Place the Almonds and Cashews in a large mixing bowl and fold in the syrup mixture.  Spread the nuts onto a half sheet pan lined with heavy duty aluminium foil

  4. Roast in the oven for 6-8 minutes and then stir them around on the sheet
  5. Roast for another 6-8 minutes until they’ve developed a nice color and great smell
  6. Sprinkle kosher salt over the nuts immediately after they come out of the oven. They’ll be gooey while they are still warm and be much less sticky once cooled
