Finally, another Joy the Baker recipe!
I apologize for lack of Sundays with Joy posts the past couple weeks. Between starting a new job, taking four graduate school classes, and trying to have something resembling a social life, weekend blogging (and blogging in general) has fallen by the wayside. I miss getting in the kitchen and testing recipes as often as I was, and most importantly, I missed cooking from the Joy the Baker Cookbook!
I picked a great week to get back on track with these posts, because this recipe was quite possibly my favorite thus far! Yes, a batch of cashews won me over. I know you’re probably shocked, when decadent desserts like these s’mores brownies and this zucchini cream cheese pound cake have graced these pages. But what can I say? Nuts are my weakness. I put my own spicy spin on them by adding red pepper flakes, and in true Rachel fashion, I cut the batch down by (almost) half.
I only wish I made more, because I can’t stop eating this cashews! Seriously to.die.for.
- 1 1/3 cups raw unsalted cashews
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 tsp ground dry mustard
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment or silicone baking mat.
- In a medium-sized bowl, stir together honey, olive oil, mustard, red pepper flakes, and salt. Toss cashews into mixture and stir until all of the cashews are coated.
- Spread cashews in a single layer on baking sheet and bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes until fragrant, stirring once about halfway through cooking time.
- Remove from oven, let cool, and consume!
