Delicious, easy, super-quick to make and popular - what more could you want in a plant-y snack?

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Yields: 30 - 40 bites


1 cup almond butter or peanut and almond butter or peanut butter

3 tablespoons rice bran syrup (or maple syrup)

½ cup of seeds (combination of pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy and/or chia seeds)

1½ tablespoons coconut flour (or desiccated coconut)

1 scoop protein powder

½ teaspoon vanilla extract


1Line a slice tray (18 x 28cm) with baking paper.

2Place nut butter and rice bran syrup in a bowl over hot water. Mix together until well combined, then add coconut flour, protein powder and vanilla. Adjust the coconut flour if necessary until mixture reaches a firm biscuit-dough consistency. Add a small amount of warm water to mixture if too dry.

3Press into the tray to a thickness of approximately 1 cm (this will not fill the whole tray). Refrigerate until set and cut into small bites. Must be kept refrigerated.

Use whatever combination of seeds takes your fancy! The protein powder is optional – substitute with desiccated coconut or coconut flour if you prefer. You may need to add a little water to help it bind if you use peanut butter, which can make the mixture drier than almond butter.
