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).



  1. Preheat oven to 160° and line a flat pan with baking paper.
  2. Beat the eggs until foamy.
  3. Add the sugar and continue beating.
  4. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Beat this into the mixture.
  5. Stir in the vanilla and seeds/pepitas.
  6. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the mixture is brown and crispy.
  7. Cut into squares or rectangular bars while warm and store in an airtight container.


I usually get about 24 bars out of this mixture.
