This delicious recipe for air fryer sweet and salty roasted cashew nuts is super easy to make. This snack is quicker to make in the air fryer and has a perfect maple and salty flavor.



2 cups Raw Cashew Nuts
2 Tbsp. Honey
2 Tbsp. Real Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp. Nutritional Yeast Flakes
1 Tbsp. Brown Rice Flour


In a large mixing bowl stir together the cashews, honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutritional yeast and brown rice flour. Stir until the nuts are completely coated in the mixture.

Pour the nut mixture into the tub of your air fryer. Spread the nuts around to give room for air to circulate around them.

Roast at 350 degrees for 6 minutes.

While the nuts are roasting line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

After the nuts are done roasting pour them onto the baking sheet and spread them around to let them cool.

After the cashews are completely cooled store them in an air tight container.


Spreading the nuts onto the baking sheet is important so you don't get a large clump of stuck together cashews.
