Honey-Sesame Cashews

This recipe was inspired by a store-bought version of honey-sesame cashews, but the homemade results were fantastic and better than what came pre-made.


  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon butter (can be substituted with canola oil)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar

Spread the cashews evenly on a rimmed baking sheet and roast them in a 250° oven for about 8-10 minutes, until they just start to brown.  Move them around a bit halfway through to make sure that they don’t burn.  Meanwhile, melt the butter and honey together.  As soon as you pull the cashews from the oven, drizzle them with the honey-butter mixture (in a bowl or directly on the sheet) and toss them so that they are evenly coated.  Then sprinkle the sugar, salt, and sesame seeds and toss them again.  Put them back in the oven for 8-10 more minutes and watch them to make sure they don’t burn.  When they come out, toss them once again to pick up any stray sesame seeds, then let them cool completely on the sheet.

An easy, delicious, and wholesome snack – enjoy!
