So here is the recipe for anybody who fancies something a bit different.It is also a nice easy no cook recipe.
1oz poppy seeds
1oz sesame seeds
1oz sunflower seeds
1oz pumpkin seeds
2oz pure sunflower spread
2 tablespoon molases
Put pumpkin and sunflower seeds into a liquidiser and mush, add raisins and cranberries and mix again to break down the dried fruit slightly. Place into a bowl and stir in poppy seeds and sesame seeds.
|all mushed together (hence the name)|
In a separate bowl place the carob broken into squares, add sunflower spread and molases and melt in the microwave for 2-4 mins until soft and stir together, stir in dried ingredients until well mixed.
Place into a baking tin lined with clingfilm ( makes it easier to remove) and cut into 1 inch squares, leave to cool then break into squares. This makes approx 30 squares.
|ready to cool|
This is difficult to eat in large quantities as it is very heavy. It is healthy as it is full of iron, magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium, omega 3's etc. I use to like giving this to food allergy children as they often lack some of these essential vitamins due to the restrictions placed on them.
Hint - make a larger quantity of the mushy mix and store in an air tight tin until you need it again.
