        Hi Kankana, I suggest trying the “Crunch” recipe- a super speedy, absolutely delicious buckwheat slice, also the “Crunchy Quinoa”- very nutritious, delicious and highly addictive!

      It is AMAZING! We now have a big box of ground up pumpkin and sunflower seeds, so I can whip up a batch of these very quickly, without a processor. They are SOOOOOOOO tasty! I leave the sesame seeds whole, and stir them in with the coconut. x I’ve run out of coconut at the moment, and am craving another batch- honestly, they’ve become a huge favourite!

      • Thank YOU!! Make them without the coconut, they will still be delicious I am sure. xx

    What could I substitute the sunflower seeds for?!? I don’t like the taste of them 🙁

    • You could just add an extra tablespoon of the coconut, sesame and pumpkin seeds. I hope this helps.

    Come on, Team Slade, you can conquer the world! Happy Birthday to Elise, the first of your beautiful children to be lucky enough to have you as her Mum! Try and stay content, there’s a lot to be said for it! xx My carer blitzed the seeds up for me yesterday, so my other carer and I are going to just stir everything together today and my hubby will bake it later. I’m good at delayed gratification…. although I would love to make, bake and scoff the lot…NOW!

    • Oh reading this made me think how lovely it would be just rolled into balls and eaten either raw or baked! I think you would like them, the are not especially sweet. I hope you are going well. Sending love. xxx

    This is GORGEOUS! It works really well by just grinding up the seeds, then stirring everything else in. I added a teaspoon of almond milk, as my method meant it was a little stiff. Next time I might keep some of the sesame seeds whole, for extra crunch. Very, very nice, it will become a favourite! Thank you, dear Bianca xx

    • Thank YOU!!! I was thinking when I read your previous comment that you might of needed to add a little extra for it to bind. I am glad you enjoyed it. You could also crumbly it and mix it with your toasted buckwheat. xxx

    Hello!! You rock my world Bianca, your recipes really are simple AND delicious. Here in South Africa we have a thing called ‘rusks’. Basically these are hard biscuit type slices about 2.5cm thick, typically dunked into a morning cup of tea/ coffee. I have been looking for a Paleo ‘rusk’ recipe for AGES, always attempting to turn a cookie/ biscuit recipe into rusks but with my attempts ending disappointment. This recipe is the closest thing Wow, wow, wow!!! I pressed one batch into my bread mould, sliced it once cooled for 5 min then transferred back to my oven(which I switched off) – allowing the slices to harden. Although they hold their shape quite well, they still do crumble a little. WOULD IT HELP IF I ADDED PSYLIUM HUSK TO THE RECIPE? if so, how much? If not, what other suggestions do you have? xxx

    • Thank YOU!!! I wouldn’t add psylium as that will make them more crumbly unless you also add liquid. Are you wanting to add something to stop them being crumbly? I would just increase the honey and tahini and the blending time. Does this help?

  • Amy

    Could these be frozen?

  • Kylie Baker

    My five kids thought this was fab and it didn’t last long at all in our house. Its a great snack for the school lunch boxes at a nut free zone school. Thanks again for another great recipe.

    • Great to hear!! Thank YOU for the feedback. I am glad it has been enjoyed. I would love to hear how you go with anything else that you try. x

  • Leah Pollock

    Could I replace the tahini with nut butter? Thanks Bianca

  • Sandra WITHERS

    I blitzed up the dry ingredients first.. after 14 min baking texture still a bit sticky.. bake longer? I used maple not honey.

  • Emma Porter

    Just made this with a couple of variations as I didn’t have everything. It’s delicious before its even baked. Would make great bliss balls.

    Made this recipe with my 2 yr old son as it was very quick and simple. The slice was delicious! Will be making it again! Thanks Bianca!
