Not for paleo lovers! Looking for a snack that has no artificial colours or flavours, and that will probably become a family favourite? This recipe is so easy to make, and so delicious!

Some people think Naturopaths shouldn't recommend indulgent treats, but as long as they're eaten in moderation (eg 1 slice daily), along with a nutritious and healthy diet, snacks like these can be a part of enjoyable eating. Just avoid this recipe if you're thoroughly paleo, dairy free or nut intolerant. For gluten free, see the alternatives to oats. To avoid unpleasant bloating from dried fruits, make sure you use sulphite/preservative free types, usually available at your health shop or organic shop. And to make the snack even healthier, go for organic nuts, grains, seeds and fruits. Enjoy!


  • 1 Cup Sesame Seeds

  • 1 Cup Coconut

  • 1 Cup Sunflower Seeds

  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats (or rolled Rice Flakes, Quinoa Flakes, Flaxseeds if gluten intolerant)

Lightly Toast these ingredients, then add;

  • 1/2 Cup Mixed Nuts

  • 1/2 Cup Dried Fruit (mixed, or sultanas, apricots etc)

In a separate bowl, mix;

  • 185grams Butter

  • 2 Tablespoons Honey

  • 1/2 Metric Cup Brown Sugar

In a saucepan, melt these ingredients, then boil for 4 minutes

Add boiled ingredients to dry mixture and mix well

Press mixture firmly into a shallow tray lined with greaseproof paper while still warm

Set in fridge to cool & firm

When slice is firm, cut into desired sections and serve
