healthy protein packed snack maple cinnamon cashew pecans

Maple Cinnamon Cashews and Pecans

I am always looking for healthy snacks.  These maple cinnamon cashews and pecans are a little bit sweet, a little bit salty, and very crunchy… a trifecta of healthy snack deliciousness. Served on their own or as part of a snack mix, they are a protein-packed healthier snack that you will love.

Recipe makes 4 cups of nuts.

Maple Cinnamon Cashews and Pecans

Maple Cinnamon Cashews and Pecans


  • 2 cups cashews
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I typically use olive oil or avocado oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F
  2. Line a cookie sheet with foil
  3. Combine all ingredients except nuts in a bowl, stir until combined
  4. Add nuts and stir until well coated
  5. Evenly spread coated nuts on foil covered cookie sheet
  6. Roast in oven for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes until nuts are toasted
  7. Cool completely and store in airtight container


Cashews, pecans and almonds all work well in this recipe. My 2 year old son prefers cashews and I prefer pecans, so I usually make a mix. However, 4 cups of your preferred nuts will work well in this recipe.
