Apr 24, 2018


  • 1 Cup SesaFlax

  • 1/3 Cup Coarsley Chopped Pistachios or Other Nutes (optional)

  • 1/2 Cup Honey

  • 1 Inch Lemon Peel

  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice

  • 1/4 Cup Sugar (optional)


  1. Add honey, lemon peel, lemon juice, and sugar to a sauce pan.

  2. Heat mixture at medium heat until simmering, stirring continuously for 5 minutes.

  3. Turn off heat and SesaFlax and Pistachios.

  4. Mix well.

  5. Empty contents of pan onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper.

  6. Flatten with a spatula brushed with olive oil to prevent sticking.

  7. If not using sugar, place in refrigerator and allow to cool about 1/2 hour.

  8. Once firm, cut into bars or desired shape and separate bars with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
  9. Serve!

Note: If using sugar, cool at room temperature and cut before bars become hard. Use Greek honey or add a bit of thyme for a more traditional favour. Enjoy this snack bar inspired by the Ancient Greeks!
