Candied Furikake Nuts

These Candied Furikake Nuts are oven-roasted with furikake sushi rice seasoning, sambal oelek, and maple syrup making them sweet, slightly spicy, salty, and umami all at once!


  • 3 cups cashews, pecans, and almonds
  • 2 tablespoons black and white sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek or sriracha
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons furikake seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, except for the furikake seasoning. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined oven tray and roast for 12 minutes until toasty.
  3. Put the roasted nuts back into the bowl, adding the furikake seasoning, and mix together until all nuts are coated with little specks of nori!


  • You can use any of the nuts above, in varying quantities, or just choose your favorite of the three! You could also use brazil nuts, macadamia, or walnuts.
  • If you don’t have maple syrup you can use honey instead.
  • You can substitute the sambal or sriracha with cayenne or chili flakes or omit entirely if you don’t like it spicy.
  • I used a homemade furikake seasoning mix, but you can opt for a store-bought one to save time. I’ll be posting the recipe for my own soon!
