Honey-roasted peanuts are a popular salt-, sugar- and honey-flavored peanut snack, offered as a product line by several prominent nut companies such as Planters, Sun Valley Nut Co and KingNut.
The oven is preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit while butter and honey are heated together on a stovetop. Then, the peanuts are tossed into a bowl with the butter and honey until they are submerged. The peanuts are then transferred to a cookie sheet and baked for 5 to 10 minutes. The peanuts are checked on every 2–3 minutes to make sure all sides have turned golden brown. They are then removed from the oven, where they cool for 3 minutes. Salt or sugar is sprinkled on top for additional flavouring. 
Honey-roasted peanuts are not as healthy as peanuts in their natural state, but they are still a fairly healthy snack option. The snack contains important dietary fibers, carbohydrates, protein, fat, and vitamins and minerals. Honey-roasted peanuts contain complex carbohydrates, simple carbohydrates, and a good amount of fiber. The complex carbs come from the peanuts themselves, while the honey provides simple carbs. Simple carbs will provide you with instant energy, while complex carbs provide long lasting energy. In a one-ounce serving of this snack, you are consuming seven grams of protein, a higher rate of protein than in most other snacks. It also contains high levels of unsaturated fats, vitamins, and minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, and folate.
