    Makes: 24 bars

    • 50g sesame seeds
    • 50g raw sunflower seeds
    • 40g chopped pecans
    • 45g chopped almonds
    • 30g unsweetened desiccated coconut
    • 100g crisp rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies®

    • 350g mini marshmallows

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a large frying pan over medium heat, stir together the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pecans and almonds. Cook until the sesame seeds are starting to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Add coconut and stir until sesame seeds are golden. Watch carefully, as they burn easily. Stir in the cranberries and cereal; remove from heat.
    2. In a large saucepan, combine the peanut butter, butter and marshmallows. Cook and stir over low heat until marshmallows are melted. Pour in the cereal and nut mixture and stir until evenly coated. Press lightly into a greased 20x30cm baking dish. Let stand until cool, then cut into bars. Store in an airtight container or wrap individually in cling film.

    Changed a few things: the sunflower to pumpkin seed, flaked almonds instead of pecans, gluten free crispies, and no palm oil peanut butter, lastly only 150gm of the marshmallows, as I was going for more crunch, less sticky (not that there's anything wrong with sticky.. just personal choice). Yummy, many thanks for the recipe  -  04 May 2014


    These were great! It's a pretty foolproof recipe. I subbed in extra and different types of seeds and nuts and it was awesome. Thanks for the recipe.  -  19 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were soooo---good. I made them for Christmas. The only change made was that I used no sesame seeds and double the sunflower seed.  -  04 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
