Honey Roasted Nuts, a deliciously easy snack, perfect for parties and gifts too! Seasoned with honey and cinnamon with a pinch of salt for a great taste. This is just absolutely amazing and so good tasting.
I love honey-roasted nuts. But if you are like me, you see them in the shops and look at the price and wonder why on earth they are so expensive. I really don't understand why when you can make them so cheaply at home and of course, the advantage of making your own is you can add different nut combinations, and more or less sugar, spice, and so on.
What can I make with leftover bags of nuts?
For all you bakers out there, here's a great tip.
Do you ever find yourself with lots of bags of different nuts where you've bought them for various recipes and used a bit from here and a bit from there and you end up with lots of different small quantities of nuts?
Well, this recipe for honey roasted nuts is a great way to get all those loose nuts you have in your kitchen cupboard and turn them into a delicious snack!
What nuts can I use for this recipe?
These honey-roasted nuts are really flexible. For this, I have used half cashew nuts and half peanuts. You can use pecans, walnuts, or any other nuts you enjoy.
What spices can I use?
I've also used cinnamon in this recipe, but if you wanted to experiment, try adding (the same quantity) pumpkin spice instead, or a mix of cinnamon and nutmeg.
The good thing about these honey roasted nuts is their simplicity to make. They do take a little time to cool so they're not sticky, but that's ok.
Just set them aside and forget about them for a few hours!
If you have friends and family who love nuts, then these honey roasted nuts would make a perfect gift at Christmas time or for a birthday present. Simply put them in a few mason jars, tie a ribbon around them, and there you have a lovely gift which was made with love!
As for parties, these are a great snack. Pop some in a few bowls and dot them around the room for people to help themselves. Perfect if you're planning or going to a New Year's Eve party!
If you're a fan of granola, why not add some to that too. We have a couple of lovely recipes for granola, Coconut and Cranberry Granola and Easy Homemade Maple Almond Granola.
How long do these honey-roasted nuts keep for?
These Honey Roasted Nuts will store for quite a while if you needed to make them ahead.
I can't honestly say how long they will keep for, as whenever I've made them, they've only ever managed to last 2 days at the most before they all disappear, but if you store them in an airtight container, I would imagine a couple of weeks would be absolutely fine.
So go ahead! Make some deicious Honey Roasted Nuts and enjoy!
Ingredients you'll need
4 cups nuts, I used half cashew and half peanut
1 Cup Honey
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
4 Tablespoons Sugar
1 ½ Teaspoons Sea Salt
1. Preheat oven to 325 F or 170 C. Have all your ingredients ready.
2. In a small saucepan, add the honey, butter, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and on medium heat, stir until melted. Once it starts to bubble, keep stirring for about 2 minutes.
3. Put the nuts in a large mixing bowl and add the honey mixture,
stirring so everything is combined and the nuts are nicely coated.
4. Pour the nuts onto 2 large baking sheets. Line them with parchment paper to avoid any sticking.
Make sure you spread the nuts out as much as you can so they all get an even browning in the oven. Place in the oven for 20 minutes.
5. Halfway through the baking, or when you see the nuts start to turn golden brown, use a spatula and turn the nuts over and return to the oven for the remaining bake time.
When the time is up, check for a nice golden brown like in the photos. If the nuts need a bit longer in the oven just pop them back in but keep an eye out they don't burn!
6. Once done, remove from the oven and let sit to cool for about 15 minutes. Then transfer the nuts to a mixing bowl and add the sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, together with the salt. Use a slotted spoon to combine everything.
7. Turn the nuts out onto a fresh sheet of parchment and spread out so they are not clumped together.
Allow to cool until they are not sticky. Depending on the temperature, it should take around 1 - 3 hours for them to completely cool and dry out.
8. Store in an air tight container or package in some nice jars to give as gifts to your friends and family.
