Roasted Maple Sesame Cashews

These Maple Sesame Cashews are a true crowd pleaser. Arielle Haspel shows you how to make one of her go-to clean eating treats that are sure to satisfy 

You will first start with raw cashews, then add your pure maple syrup. Maple syrup is one of Arielle's Clean Eating cooking staples. Many people assume that a clean eating lifestyle requires getting rid of sugar completely, but Arielle's personal philosophy is that maple syrup can be a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthier way.

Coconut oil comes next, which has anti inflammatory properties. In a practical sense, it is very useful as it helps everything stick together! Sesame seeds are the next ingredient, which help give this snack a dramatic pop of black and white. Make sure each cashew is fully coated with a good amount of sesame seeds.

Grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper, which helps the cashews not stick. As you spread out the cashews, make sure they are not touching - this will help ensure they are perfectly crispy on the outside. The great part about this snack is that it only needs to bake for 5 minutes or so. To ensure your maple sesame cashews bake evenly, toss them with a spatula. A sprinkle of sea salt is the finishing touch. Once they cool, you are now ready to enjoy this crispy and crunchy clean eating snack!

 

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
