- 600 gm puffed spelt
- 200 gm roasted rice syrup
- 200 gm roasted cashew nuts
- 200 gm roasted almonds nuts
- 200 gm roasted sesame seeds
- 200 gm roasted pumpkin seeds
- 200 gm roasted sunflower seeds
In a large heavy-based deep open pan over medium heat, roast the seeds and nuts individually and set them aside.
To not burn the ingredients, reduce the heat to low, add the Spelt puff and start warming them by constantly stirring it in the pan.
Check that puffs are crunchy, next add the toasted seeds, nuts one by one, and continue stirring until all ingredients are consistently hot.
Bring the heat to very low and gently stir in the rice syrup until you get all the ingredients clumpy and remove from heat.
Lay a sheet of vegetable or parchment paper onto the tabletop. Transfer all the mixture from the pan onto the sheet of paper.
Place another sheet of paper over the mixture and press the pile down to make a sizeable flat bar.
Form a compact block of 2cm high by rolling it out with a rolling pin or use your palms and push the puff mixture into a rectangular form.
Compact the edges as much as possible to keep a regular rectangular shape to prevent cut-offs.
Once you have the shape formed to your satisfaction, allow the crunchy bar to set and cool for 20 to 30 minutes.
Once it's cooled sufficiently, check that the compact rectangle is firm, You may slice it to the size you prefer.
Store them in a glass jar with an airtight cap.
These will probably not last very long on the shelve depending on the cookie thieves you have at home.
