Pumpkin seeds (pepitas) contain protein, glutamate, vitamin B and magnesium. Sunflower seeds are a good source of folate (which promotes a healthy immune system), and vitamin E (an antioxidant which helps healthy hair and skin). Flax seeds contain soluble fibre and Omega-3 fatty acid.

Ingredients

Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.
If you’re missing a thing or two, tick the items you need to add to your shopping list.

What to do

  • 1. In a nonstick pan, melt the coconut butter and agave on medium heat until runny, siring often.

  • 2. Mix all remaining ingredients (apart from sesame seeds) in a mixing bowl until well combined, then add to the pan. Stir frequently.

  • 3. Toast until golden, then immediately remove from heat.

  • 4. Add ingredients to a blender and mix at 3 second intervals. The ingredients should still be chunky and not blended.

  • 5. Transfer mixture to a flat pan and press down using a spatula. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top. (Tip: if the mixture doesn’t seem sticky enough, melt some more coconut butter and agave and drizzle on top.)

  • 6. Transfer to fridge to set (this will take a few hours). Once set, cut into squares and store in an airtight container, or wrap individually for an on-the-go snack!
