Here is a delicious sweet and salty recipe for your plain old cashews. The method of oven-roasting can be applied to various spices to create all sorts of flavors. Spicy, savory or sweet, you can enjoy the fun of creating new flavors!
Oven Roasted Maple Cinnamon Cashews
2 cups plain unsalted cashews
2 tsp ghee (or organic unsalted butter)
2 tsp maple syrup
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place cashews on an ungreased cooking sheet. Bake for 7-10 min, or until nuts have warmed. Meanwhile combine maple syrup and ghee (you may have to melt the ghee a bit so you can stir ingredients together). Remove nuts from the oven and place in a mixing bowl. Pour syrup and ghee over them. Stir until everything is coated. Pour nuts onto a cutting board or back on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon and salt to taste. Let cool a few min before enjoying, as they will be pretty warm from the oven. Enjoy!
