1 Cup Sesame Seeds
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1 Cup Coconut
1 Cup Assorted Nuts, chopped
1/2 Cup Sultanas
1 Tbsp Honey
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
1. Toast the first four ingredients in the microwave for 8 minutes, stirring twice. Time may vary according to your microwave wattage. Or alternatively spread seeds, nuts and coconut on a tray lined with baking paper and toast in the oven for 3-4 minutes until golden.
2. In a saucepan, boil butter, honey, brown sugar and salt for 4 minutes until it bubbles and thickens like toffee.
3. Add sultanas to butter mixture and then add to seeds.
4. Mix well and then press in a slice tin lined with baking paper. Cut into slices or bars whilst it is still warm before it sets completely. Store in the fridge.
Use diced cranberries or diced apricots instead of coconut.
