These chilli-caramel cashews are the perfect mix of sweet and heat!

Cashew nuts are high in protein, rich in vitamin E and a good source of magnesium and zinc. Like most nuts, cashews provide a hefty hit of monounsaturated fats, a nutrient which has been linked to heart health. Sweetened with maple syrup, these nuts are vegan suitable and make the perfect snack to bring this social season, or wrap them up to give as little gifts.

Serves 10
Prep time 10 minutes
Cook time 15 minutes


  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp ground chilli
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 4 cups raw, unsalted cashew nuts
  • Sea salt flakes

How to make
