Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 4 teaspoons butter flavored coconut oil melted and warmed
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rosemary fresh
  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • In a mixing bowl add the raw cashews, warmed coconut oil, maple syrup, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, cayenne pepper, and 1 1/2 tablespoon rosemary, whisk well. Then toss over nuts and stir until they are evenly coated with mixture.
  • Roast nuts on a parchment paper lined sheet pan for about 10 minutes, stirring and turning pan 1/2 way through roasting. Then roast for another 7 minutes or until golden brown.  I set my timer and checked them every minute until they were brown and caramelized. Be careful they can go from golden to dark fast!
  • Immediately after removing the cashew nuts from oven, sprinkle with remaining salt and fresh rosemary. Allow to cool one minute then give them a stir. Allow to cool another minute or so and then lift the parchment paper with the nuts on it and break apart any nuts sticking together.
  • Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Store in a covered container for up to a week.
