I don’t like complicated recipes but I love healthy sweets. This Sesame Seed and Sunflower Candy recipe will help you quickly and easily prepare a perfect healthy snack to enjoy in moderation.
100 g of sesame seeds
100 g of sunflower seed
61-65 g of honey (the more, the sweeter)
Measure honey into a bowl. Microwave honey until it melts (+/- 30 seconds) or, if you don’t have a microwave, place the bowl with honey on a small pot with water on a hot stove and wait until the honey melts.
In a separate bowl mix sunflower seeds with sesame seeds. When the honey is ready, it’s time for more mixing. Use the bowl with honey for mixing the seeds in as seeds are easier to move without wastage (pic 1).
When everything is well mixed, spread the mixture on baking paper with a fork. Try to make the shape more or less rectangular. Don’t worry, if some bits are out. Do avoid holes and uneven thickness, though.
Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees (Celsius!). Place the mixture spread on the baking paper carefully in the oven, on the top rack. Set the timer for 12 minutes. Check how the candy is doing.
The time to take it out is right when the sides are brownish and the mass is firm(ish). Take it out and let it settle for 15 minutes. If you have any uneven endings cut them off and eat them or give to someone you’re not trying to impress.
Cut the ready product into pieces. I usually make lines of around 5 cm and half the shorter edge to form two bars but it’s really up to you.
Keep cutting until you’re done. Store in plastic containers. You’ll have to test for yourself how long they can survive there. In my house they’re gone in 2-3 days 🙂 Enjoy!
