Do you love cashews? Us too! They are one of the most versatile nuts we've met. From cashew cream, to cheese, to smoothies, to simply enjoying them with apples or grapes. Seriously, try it. You can do so much with them. We partnered with Maria from @FoodbyMaria to create this perfect healthy snack. We're excited to share it with you and hope you'll enjoy this recipe.

Sunfood cashews are Certified Organic and premium-quality. We cultivate our cashews with small-scale organic farmers to provide you with the best taste quality. Our cashews are hand-cracked and minimally processes them. We don't pasteurize or steam any of the nuts, which leaves all the good nutrients and enzymes intact, making them the perfect healthy snack.


Cashews are a healthy source of fats and contain:

  • Vitamin B1, which contributes to mental function and metabolism
  • Vitamin B6, which contributes to healthy immunity and regulates metabolism
  • Vitamin K, which helps support normal thrombosis
  • Magnesium, which contributes to bone health and immunity
  • Calcium, which assists in supporting strong bones
  • Potassium, which helps maintain normal blood pressure

Taking these super healthy nuts and adding sweet and spicy twist makes them mouth watering. These are great to have on-hand as a healthy snack for you and/or your family. They’re kid-friendly, quick and easy to make and come in handy when on-the-go.

Raw Organic Whole Cashews

Sweet & Spicy Crispy Cashews




35 minutes


  • 2 cups Sunfood Whole Organic Raw Cashews
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • dash of dried chilies
  • season to taste
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • juice of half a lime
  • dash of liquid smoke


  1. Preheat your oven to 300F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Into two bowls combine your dry ingredients and your wet ingredients. Stir them both well.
  3. Add your cashews to the wet bowl and stir till all the cashew nuts are coated. Let them sit and marry in the mixture for around 10 minutes then remove any excess liquid and transfer cashews to the dry ingredients bowl. Stir till well coated then transfer cashews to baking sheet. TIP: do not discard the excess wet mixture that is remaining. I liked adding some of the liquid to the cooked cashew nuts for extra flavour but that is completely optional.
  4. Cook for 20-25 minutes or until your cashew feel harder to touch and more crispy to taste. Make sure to stop and flip half way through and keep your eyes on them as they can burn quickly if left unattended.
  5. Serve as a snack, bring with you on a hike, add to salads or crunchy chickpea sandwiches!
