Preparation Time: 20 minutes + 4 hours chilling
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoon walnuts
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons raw cashews
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
- 3 tablespoons shredded coconut
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 6 tablespoons sesame seeds – divided use
- parchment paper (preferably unbleached natural), optional
invisible tape, optional
- stickers, optional
Lightly grease the mixing bowl for easier removal.
Place ingredients into a bowl – reserving 3 tablespoon of sesame seeds for later use. Mix together. The mixture will be very thick and difficult to stir.
Place a sheet of parchment paper into a dish 7″ x 5″ to line the bottom and sides. Lightly grease the parchment paper with coconut oil. Sprinkle 1.5 tablespoons of sesame seeds onto the parchment paper.
Place the candy mixture into the parchment paper. Grease the back of a spoon or your fingers and mold into the dish.
Sprinkle the remaining sesame seeds over the top of the candy mixture until it is evenly covered.
Refrigerate overnight, or at least four hours.
Remove and cut lengthwise so that you have a rectangular piece which is 2.5″ wide and 7″ long. Now cut 1/2″ pieces which will give you 14 pieces from each rectangle.
OPTIONAL – wrap each piece individually: Remove a strip of parchment paper 7.5″ long. Cut each piece into a 3″ piece strip. Lay the piece of candy in lengthwise, and roll the ends until they overlap. Use a piece of invisible or transparent tape long enough to wrap around and adhere to itself. You should have a round tube now. Attach a sticker if you wish. Now carefully fold down the ends and twist.
