A handful of nuts is one of my very favorite snacks! Whether they are peanuts that I have to shell myself or mixed nuts, I find that they always do the trick when I’m looking for a treat.

A few years back my friend gave me a great recipe for Rosemary Cashews. The recipe was initially to be made in the oven but since I’m currently obsessed with my air fryer, I decided to give it a try in there.

A bowl of nuts and craft beers off to the sides.

Making these cashews in the air fryer meant that I could make a small batch for just me or a larger batch if we had guests or if I want to have extras for snacks.

How to make Air Fryer Rosemary Cashews:

I made these in a small batch for snacking so I used 1/4 of the recipe that I have below. I love that I can whip up a small amount for movie night, it works great in the air fryer.

In a microwave proof bowl melt the butter.

To the melted butter add Worcestershire Sauce, rosemary, chili powder, mustard powder, and brown sugar. Stir to combine.

Add the cashews to another bowl. Pour the butter mixture over the top.

Stir to coat the nuts with the butter mixture.

Ingredients and steps for making cashews in the air fryer.

Place the nuts in a layer in the air fryer tray.

Set the air fryer to 300 degrees and cook for 4 minutes. Remove the tray and stir the nuts. Put the tray back and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Repeat one final time.

Check the nuts to see if they are golden. Take the nuts and spread them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper to cool.

Serve with some great craft beer and a good movie. Have extras? Store in a sealed container for up to 1 week.

Tips for making cashews in the air fryer:

  • When making a larger batch, half the mixture and make in 2 separate batches.
  • Do not be alarmed when you see that they are ‘soft’ to touch.
