Birdseed Bar


1 Cup Sesame Seeds
1 Cup Sunflower Seeds
1 Cup Coconut
1 Cup Assorted Nuts, chopped
1/2 Cup Sultanas
100g Butter
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.

Alternative Recipe:
Use diced cranberries or diced apricots instead of coconut.
