My new favourite snack are these deeelicious pepita bars. As a nut Allergian, these are a great alternative to a muesli/nut bar!
I’ve made two different varieties of these – honey vs sugar – they were very different and both really tasty. Either way, choose your weapon and get that oven baking!
2 eggs (or egg substitute)
2 cups dark brown sugar or 1 1/3 cups honey
3 tablespoons flour (GF if required)
2 teaspoons baking powder (GF if required)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups of pepitas/sunflower seeds/sesame seeds (2 cups of whatever you fancy, really).
- Preheat oven to 160° and line a flat pan with baking paper.
- Beat the eggs until foamy.
- Add the sugar and continue beating.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Beat this into the mixture.
- Stir in the vanilla and seeds/pepitas.
- Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the mixture is brown and crispy.
- Cut into squares or rectangular bars while warm and store in an airtight container.
I usually get about 24 bars out of this mixture.

Happy baking 🙂
