Ingredients
  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • 3 Tbsp sesame seeds (mixture of white and black)
  • Few sprinkles sea salt
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
Method
Place the raw cashews, maple syrup and coconut oil in a bowl. After that, take the black and white sesame seeds and sprinkle them into the bowl as well. Then, mix the ingredients in the bowl and make sure that each cashew is fully coated with a decent amount of sesame seeds. Meanwhile, place a piece of parchment paper on a pan and arrange all of the cashews on the pan far enough apart so that they aren't touching one another. If desired, you can add more sesame seeds on top of the cashews once they are on the pan. Next, put the pan of cashews in the oven and broil on high (550 degrees) for approximately 5 minutes, At about 2 minutes in, toss the cashews around to ensure that all of the pieces are crispy and crunchy. Once the cashews are out of the oven, sprinkle on a little bit of sea salt to bring out the sweetness of the maple. Serves 6
