Budgie bites

Budgie Bites
My philosophy for food is that it should taste delicious while looking after health and weight at the same time.  These bite sized morsels fit the bill perfectly.  Deliciously sweet and chewy, they are the perfect sweet treat if you care about what you put into your mouth. My husband thought they looked like budgie seed, hence the name!

Makes 12 bars or 24 bite sized chunks.
Time to make 10 minutes


1/2 cup roasted unsalted almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
4 large or 6 medium soft (medjool) dates
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1. Place almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and dates in a food processor – process for a minute or so until roughly chopped
2. Add cranberries, coconut oil and maple syrup and process to a coarse crumb. Press into small slice tin lined with baking paper.  Note, it will not fill the tin, press into a square about half an inch thick.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds and press these into the surface.  Refrigerate
3.  Leave for at least an hour before turning out and cutting into bars or small bite sized pieces.
