Honey Roasted Pistachios


Sorry for not posting yesterday 🙁 I had a major errand day that was long overdue and was out of the house (and therefore kitchen) as a result. I had nothing to post and I felt horrible and I cried all day. Ok, no I didn’t. But I still felt bad. 

Moving on.

So, my friends Joseph and Lara came to visit the other day. (Yay Joseph and Lara!) During our little adventure, Joseph (who has recently gone paleo) gave me (who has recently gone gluten-free) the idea to make the cauliflower recipe I made for my last post. It turned out great! Thanks for the idea Joseph!

So after they left, I began thinking about this whole paleo thing. Now, for those of you who don’t know I suffer from PCOS (google it). Isn’t it funny when people say suffer from? No? Because they really are suffering and that’s not funny? Ok.

Well apparently, according to the internet, an effective natural remedy for PCOS (and the nasty cystic acne that comes along with it) is going paleo. So, this recipe is an ode to me going paleo and my friends for supporting and inspiring me. Awww. I know. 

Let’s. Get. Into. It.

Preheat your oven to 3-fitty


The ingredients are super simple. Pistachios and honey. I used manuka honey because I’m trying to better myself and my community.

I have a weird OCD thing about food sticking, so I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprayed it with some nonstick spray. This part is optional. 

Next, spread the pistachios on the baking sheet and coat with honey.

Bake for about 5 minutes or until you can just start to smell the honey and nuts. Don’t let it burn!

The picture above on the right is the color you want.

As soon as it comes out of the oven sprinkle a little kosher salt on top, if you like that salty/sweet thing.



Serve in a bowl and enjoy as a snack alone or with drinks!
