Did anyone else used to pick out certain nuts from the can of mixed nuts as a kid (or even still)?
When I was a kid, cashews were my favorite. I would eat them all from the can of mixed nuts, leaving the rest for some other shmuck (aka my dad) to find. Sorry dude. You snooze, you lose.
Although there is totally nothing wrong with all of the other nuts, and I actually really like all of them. Because diversity. Or something like that.
Back to cashews. They’re stinkin’ delicious on their own, but coated in crunchy maple tahini heaven? Game. Changer.
These maple tahini cashew clusters are dangerously tasty. Slightly sweet, a little salty, super nutty, and the perfect level of toasty. It’s a combination that’s so yummy and a little addictive.
Once you make them, you wont be able to stop snacking on them! Good thing they’re so easy to make, because you’ll want to have some on hand all the time.
Which might be difficult, since they disappear so quickly. Just do yourself a favor and make them already, ok?

- 2 cups raw cashews
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup

- Remove from oven and let cool completely before breaking into clusters.
- Store in an airtight container on the counter.
