Karen’s Easy Honey Peanuts

Delicious Honey Peanuts coated last minute with a little sugar. Simple and fun to make.

Caution: These are addictive!!

Peanuts are coated with honey and butter then placed in the oven to crisp up

The perfect nosh! Also use as a garnish for a dessert like my Lightened-Up Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Chocolate Biscotti Crust and Honey Peanuts

Karen's Easy Honey Peanuts


1 tablespoons raw honey

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature (I used organic)

¼ teaspoon pure vanilla

½ cup peanuts, I used roasted unsalted

1 ½ teaspoons pure cane sugar



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in a medium sized glass bowl until just melted, I did so in a microwave.
Add the honey and vanilla; mix in well with a rubber spatula.
Add the peanuts, mix to coat them.


Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet, add the peanut mixture.
Smooth flat with your rubber spatula.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes total – opening the oven door and mixing up the peanuts EVERY two minutes. (This ensures even coating.)


They are done when the honey-butter mixture is absorbed, and they are golden brown – not darker, about 10 minutes.

Take out of the oven. Toss them with the rubber spatula and coat evenly with the sugar.

Do not toss them again – leave to cool and enjoy.

This is a small batch that can easily be doubled or tripled.

I’ve used them as a garnish for this: Lightened-Up Peanut Butter Cheesecake
with Chocolate Biscotti Crust and Honey Peanuts.
