With the holidays coming up, we wanted to make some more simple snacks to have on hand for the upcoming gatherings with family and friends. Since our herb roasted almonds were so easy to make and turned out to be a go-to snack, we decided to make some ranch roasted cashews with another one of our favorites – paleo ranch seasoning.
Since we always have raw cashews in the cupboard (we buy a bag from Trader Joe’s almost every week) and a jar of our homemade ranch seasoning on hand, making these was a breeze. We just mixed everything together and popped the cashews in the oven to roast for about 15 minutes. The result? Oh wow, you have to try these ranch roasted cashews!
Be warned – these are really addicting so you’ll have to exercise some self-control so you don’t over-indulge. I like to keep these in a jar so I can open it up and take a handful and then put them back away in the cupboard. For some reason if I leave them out in a bowl I keep gravitating back and eventually the bowl is empty. I try to control myself a bit and keeping them out of sight works – sometimes.
Try these out if you are hosting a holiday gathering and want a simple and easy snack for your guests. Or, just make a batch to have on hand for your family to snack on now and then.
