Packed with flavor, these Curry Spiced Cashews are ready in just 20 minutes! Enjoy as a quick snack or top your favorite salad with these addictive savory nuts.

When it comes to healthy snacks, nothing beats a handful of nuts. But let’s be honest, plain nuts are kind of boring.

That why I love spiced nuts, they’re LOADED with flavor and unbelievably easy to make in your toaster oven.

Lately, I’ve been filling up on these Curry Spiced Cashews. They’re buttery and savory, with a fun gingery kick. A small handful is the perfect afternoon snack to tide you over until dinner.

Now, if you’re like me and have a crazy salt-loving snack monster living in your belly too, no worries. Similar to our yummy Rosemary Cashews, this small batch recipe makes just one cup of salty seasoned nuts.

How To Make Curry Spiced Cashews In Your Toaster Oven

Start by preheating your toaster oven to 325°F and spray a light colored small toaster oven pan with cooking oil.

Next, gather the spices, oil, and maple syrup. Dump everything (except the cashews) into a large bowl and whisk the ingredients together. Now, add the cashews.

Initially, it might feel like there isn’t enough coating but don’t worry it will be plenty. Just keep stirring.

Arrange the nuts in a single layer on your prepared pan and cook for about 14 to 15 minutes. I like to give the cashews a stir after about 7 minutes and then again every 3 or 4 minutes until they’re toasted.

Once the nuts look toasted, remove the pan from the oven and give them one more good stir. It’s okay if the cashews are still a little sticky. The coating will dry and crisp up more while the nuts cool on the pan.

Allow any cashews that don’t get gobbled up right away to cool completely. Then store them in a covered jar so they’re prepped and ready to tame your next salty snack craving!
