Ever heard the saying, don’t visit someone with a new baby without taking food? Well a couple of my lovely friends always bring over delicious homemade snacks whenever they visit.
Although never expected, it’s such an amazing gesture and always appreciated when you have a newborn. It’s hard keeping up with cooking dinner some days, let alone the snacks as well and this helps for a few days at least!
This is one of the delicious slices I had the pleasure of being bought one day. It reminds me of the sesame snaps I use to eat as a child but much better and without the questionable additives and preservatives! Ah the nostalgia…
I enjoyed them so much that I had to make some more and naturally converted it to a Thermomix recipe in the process. Here is the original recipe for the non Thermies so you don’t have to miss out.
Don’t be tempted to skip the roasting process….that’s what really creates the flavour!
I hope you enjoy it!
Sesame and nut slice
Super easy and delicious, this slice is packed full of protein and nutrients.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
Line a small slice tin with baking paper
Add the nuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds to a frying pan. Dry roast over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until they are lightly toasted. Watch carefully as they can burn very quickly. Once done remove from pan so they don't continue cooking.
Add all ingredients (including the roasted nuts and seeds) to the Thermomix bowl. Combine for 20 seconds on Speed 4 Reverse until combined.
Transfer mixture to the prepared tin and press down evenly. Make sure you pack it down well so it doesn't crumble once cooked
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes
Remove from oven and allow to cool in the tin
Once cooled, lift baking paper out of tin and slice into squares with a sharp knife
Store in an airtight container
If you need these to be nut free simply leave out the nuts and replace with extra sunflower and/or pumpkin seeds. The nut butter can also be replaced with sunflower seed butter.
