Un-honey Roasted Cashews

Posted by ataraktos on 2008-08-22


  • 1/2 pound raw cashews (or any raw nut)
  • 1 generous tbsp agave nectar (I had amber but darker would probably taste better)
  • 1 generous tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 generous tbsp vegan margarine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla (optional, I forgot it and they were fine)
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp granulated sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine everything except the nuts and granulated sugar in a microwave-safe bowl, microwave about 20 seconds to melt margarine. Stir to combine.
  3. Place nuts in a bowl and add syrup mix. Stir to coat nuts.
  4. Spread nuts onto an aluminum foil topped cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 6 minutes, stir to re-coat and bake another 6-8 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Place in a bowl and sprinkle with granulated sugar, and salt to taste, while still warm.
