No-Bake Honey Maple Cashew Bars

Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 8 -10 squares
Calories 0


  • 1 cup roasted cashews
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups puffed rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats


  • In a food processor, add cashews, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Process for a few minutes, until mixture becomes a cohesive, slightly sticky mass. The cashews will have very few (if any) tiny pieces remaining and the mixture might be a little warm from the processing (see note below).
  • Place cashew mixture into a bowl and add rice cereal and oats. Using your hands or a wooden spoon, if you prefer, work in the cereal and oats until combined evenly throughout the cashew mixture.
  • Press mixture into the bottom of a small pan, such as a 9" x 5" loaf pan. Depending on the consistency, you may prefer to refrigerate bars for 15-20 minutes before slicing to ensure they have solidified. Bars will hold up at room temperature, however if storing for several days, I'd keep them in the refrigerator in the meantime.


*Note: Step #2 may be easier if the cashew mixture is warm. If mixture isn't as workable as you'd like right out of the food processor, place cashew mixture in a small saucepan over low-medium heat until heated a bit. Then remove from heat and proceed with the cereal and oats.
