Maple Glazed Cashews
There are times during the day when you’ve gone too long between meals, and you feel hungry.
You want to reach for a snack, but you’re not sure what you should reach for. Something crunchy? Something sweet? Something savory?
Now you can answer all of those questions with a resounding “Yes!”
I’ve come up with an ultra simple recipe for maple glazed cashews. All you need are three simple ingredients and 15 minutes. Really.
Plus, I’m pairing these maple glazed cashews with tasty premium steak strips and pork cuts from Lorissa’s Kitchen to make the perfect snack time combination. It makes a deliciously portable protein snack when you’re on the go.
Have you seen Lorissa’s Kitchen Korean Barbecue Beef (pictured above) at Walmart? I found mine in the checkout aisle near the cash registers, alongside the other Lorissa’s Kitchen flavors.

I loved trying each of the different flavors, especially because the beef is grass-fed and the pork is responsibly raised. That means a lot to me.
Knowing about all the quality ingredients that went into a snack makes it taste that much better!
These cashews are also made with simple ingredients: unsalted cashews, maple syrup, and a touch of sea salt.
I like to use unsalted cashews so I can control the level of salt. That way, I can get the ratio of sweet to salty just right.
Choosing a protein packed snack keeps hunger and bay and helps you feel satisfied.
So let’s get those cashews going, and you’ll be fully prepared to take your snacks with you wherever your busy day takes you.
Tips for Making Maple Glazed Cashews
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Once the cashews are coated in maple syrup, they will be quite sticky- especially after being heated!
- If you don’t have maple syrup, use honey, but thin it out with a touch of warm water so that it’s nice and runny (like maple syrup).
- If you don’t like salt, you can leave it out; but I prefer to add a little salt to balance all the flavors.
- You can use the same recipe to roast almonds!
Maple Glazed Cashews
- 1 cup unsalted cashews
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 pinch sea salt
- Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
- Combine the cashews and maple syrup in a bowl. Stir thoroughly to coat the cashews.
- Spread out the cashews on the parchment paper lined baking sheet so that they don't touch. Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven and set aside to cool completely.
- Remove cashews when completely cool, and store airtight. Enjoy!
