Honey Mustard Roasted Cashews

I was a little slow this week at getting to the Sundays with Joy recipe.  Honey Mustard Roasted Cashews is a simple recipe with minimal ingredients.  However, I did not have two of the main ingredients, ground mustard and cashews.  And to be honest I didn’t want to spend the money for just this recipe.  So I took some time to figure out how I could modify or just be inspired by Joy’s recipe.  Then I thought I could use the pumpkin seeds I would be roasting.  Perfect!  However, as you know, that did not work out so well.  They burned. Ok, fine.  I probably could have opened my cabinet and tried a couple of spices and use regular mustard somehow.  But for some reason, I just didn’t want to.  I wanted to follow the recipe.  I decided to see if anyone I know had ground mustard and/or an abundance of cashews they didn’t need.  I had success with the ground mustard.  I broke down and bought cashews.

This recipe came together in no time.  I did cut the recipe in half because I didn’t have enough cashews.  Simply mix together the ingredients and coat the cashews. Place the cashews on a baking sheet and bake.  Of course, they were on the verge of burning right before I took them out.  But I saved them just in time.

I have to say, these are really good!  I really can’t remember the last time I ate a cashew.  Or if I even have ever had one.  These would make the perfect party snack.

If you want to give these cashews a try, look for the recipe in the Joy the Baker cookbook.  And of course, you can check out the Joy the Baker blog for tons of great recipes.  The next Sundays with Joy recipe is Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Of course, I think sweet potato in a cookie is weird, but I won’t be surprised if they taste amazing.  I’ll let you know!
