Prep time

Total time
Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 2 cups
  • 2 cups raw cashews
  • ½ cup monk fruit maple syrup or regular maple syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • optional: 1 drop doTERRA Black Pepper essential oil
  1. In a medium skillet, roast the cashews until they begin to brown.
  2. Spread parchment paper on the counter to spread the sweet spicy cashews after they have finished.
  3. Once the cashews have begun to brown, pour in the maple syrup, salt, and chili powder and keep stirring occasionally. In the next five minutes or so, the maple syrup liquid will begin to "cook out/evaporate out," coating the nuts.
  4. As the maple syrup starts to coat the nuts, stir constantly so that the sugar does not burn.
  5. After about five minutes, there should not be any liquid left in the pan. Spread the sweet spicy cashews on the parchment paper to cool. **Note: if using monkfruit maple syrup, the finished nuts will still be sticky, while regular maple syrup will not be sticky. Place the monkfruit coated nuts in a 350F oven for 2-3 minutes to dry out and get crunchy.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
The serving sizes are basic estimates based upon the servings my husband and I use to reach fullness and satiety when eating this recipe. Please remember to honor your hunger and fullness by eating more when you are hungry and stopping when you are satisfied.
Please, only use doTERRA essential oils internally because they are the only essential oil company with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) quality!
