Coconut Seed Bites

If you've purused the health food aisle at your local supermarket you may have seen those sesame seed snacks. They're meant to be healthy, however upon reading the ingredient list you'll see that they contain added sugars; not so healthy after all. 

These aren't quite the same as they don't contain sesame seeds, but they remind me of the texture. If you make these at home, feel free to add sesame seeds so they resemble the original.


25g Pureharvest Rice Malt Syrup
10g Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
10g Shelled Hemp Seeds
10g Chia Seeds


Use a food processor or coffee grinder to finely chop the coconut flakes
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl
Zap the rice malt syrup in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, or until runny
Pour over the coconut and seeds, stirring well so the syrup covers it all
Press equal amounts of the mixture into round silicone moulds or paper cupcake liners
Place in the fridge to cool and firm up (around 30 minutes)
