This slice is a super-powered variation of the sesame seed and honey bars popular in Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine. It combines a variety of seeds, of various tastes and textures, to create a sweet and crunchy slice.
Raw Seed Slice
½ cup linseeds/flaxseeds, freshly ground
½ cup sesame seeds (unhulled or black, if available)
1 cup pepitas
1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup chia seeds
½ cup hemp seeds
½ cup raw honey
½ cup unhulled tahini
Line a slice tin (26-30cm x 18-20cm) with baking paper.
Mix all seeds together in a bowl.
Place honey and tahini in a large saucepan and melt on low heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring regularly, until a smooth paste. Add seeds and stir well to combine (best achieved with your hands, either by lightly oiling your hands or food-handling gloves with olive or coconut oil, and mush/squash until well combined).
Once combined, press firmly into the tin and smooth down with the back of a metal spoon.
Refrigerate or freeze for 1-2 hours.
Cut into small squares and serve immediately. Keep chilled.
