What you need to make these honey sriracha cashews

You don’t need many ingredients for this recipe, and chances are you already have most of them on hand!

  • cashews (raw and unsalted)
  • Sriracha
  • honey
  • salt
  • optional: brown sugar

Substitutions & Additions


  • Make it vegan: if you don’t want to use honey, you can use maple syrup instead!
  • Different hot sauce: if you don’t have Sriracha, you can try using another type of hot sauce. Don’t use something to liquidy though.


  • Brown sugar: I like to sprinkle on a little brown sugar about halfway through cooking. But it’s totally optional, so if you don’t have brown sugar, it’s no big deal.
