Honey Roasted Mixed Nuts

Who knew it could be so easy to make your own honey roasted mixed nuts at home? I recently purchased raw organic cashews and almonds from SC Real Foods and this was the perfect thing to do with them.

These Honey Roasted Mixed Nuts take no time to make. You just have to have a bit of patience and spend some time breaking them apart as they cool, other than than they literally take just minutes to do.

*3 cups of nuts (I used raw organic cashews, almonds and peanuts)
*2 tbls butter or oil
*3 tbls raw honey
½ tsp salt to taste
½ tsp sugar to taste

Prepare a baking pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Melt butter in a separate bowl or measuring cup and mix in the honey. Place your nuts in a bowl and pour sweetener mixture on top, mixing thoroughly.

Spread them on the prepared baking pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven, stir, and bake them for about 8-10 minutes more or until golden (don't over-bake).

Remove and immediately and sprinkle with salt and sugar. Pour them into a bowl and stir or they will stick together in chunks. After a few minutes, spread them out on a clean baking sheet and let cool completely, stirring them from time to time.

Store in a mason jar or other air tight container.

*Cooks note - If using all peanuts, I use cocktail peanuts. Butter tends to burn quickly so oil is my personal preference. The sweetener you use can be anything you like. I prefer 1 1/2 tbls honey and 1 1/2 tbls brown sugar; that's what I've tried and like over other choices.
