These ingredients speak for themselves and you only need a handful of them to make a delicious light snack, breakfast bar, or a little school treat for the kids.
- 500 grams sesame seeds
- 250 grams of honey
- ⅓ cup of white sugar
- 1 cup of pistachio kernels
- ¾ cup of almonds roasted
*You can spread the sesame seeds in a pan and put them in the oven at 160°. You are looking for a light golden colour.
Grease a 30×20 cm non-stick tray with a cooking oil spray or generously brush with some oil (canola or vegetable oil).
Begin by placing the honey and sugar in a saucepan, stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer for approximately 4-5 minutes or until you are ready to pour over the sesame nut mixture.
In the meantime, place and stir sesame seeds in a large frying pan, over medium heat. Keep stirring the seeds at all times until lightly golden in colour. (continuous stirring will prevent the sesame seed from instantly turning brown which we want to avoid). Once sesame seeds are lightly golden in colour, add the almonds and pistachio and stir through for approximately 1 minute until nuts are well combined and heated through.
Tip the sesame nut mixture into a bowl and pour the honey mixture over the top, stirring to coat (the honey mixture will start to set straight away so you will have to work quickly here).
Once well combined, transfer the mixture into the oiled pan and firmly pack down with your wet hands.
Place a piece of greaseproof paper over the sesame slice and continue to firmly flatten. (use another pan to flatten with or a rolling pin).
The mixture should be starting to set but it will still have some flex to it. Run a knife around the edges of the tray to ensure the sesame slice smoothly tips over.
Place a board on top of the tray and tip the tray upside down.
Rest the tray on the board for approximately 1 minute allowing the sesame slice to smoothly slide onto the board.
Cut into the desired strips. For a perfectly cut slice, use a ruler.
Makes approximately 50-60 pieces
