Rosemary and Sea Salt seed bars

2014-03-12 20.14.24

These were really nice on their own but l can imagine having them with a nut butter or avocado with tuna or salmon on top. I cut them quite small so they are more like a cracker biscuit and have placed them in the freezer to pack in my lunch when working.


1 cup of organic sesame seeds

1 cup of organic pumpkin seeds

1 cup of organic sunflower seeds

1 generous tablespoon organic coconut oil

1 generous tablespoon raw organic honey

1 heaped tablespoon fresh rosemary

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup filtered water

Place all of the ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth.

Spoon the mix into a well greased biscuit tray (mine was 24cm x 34cm) and spread out smoothly with a spatula until even across the pan. I greased the pan with organic coconut oil and it is very important to grease the base well. The mixture should be about 1/2 cm thick across the tray. Bake in a 180 degree celsius oven until golden on top. Remove from the oven and while still in the tray cut the mix into slices. A tip is to run a knife around the edge of the tray to loosen the bars slightly. I cut mine into small squares as it had slightly stuck to the tray and they were easy to get out with a spatula. Carefully lift each piece out of the tray and place carefully with space between each piece onto two clean and greased trays. Return to the oven and bake for about another ten minutes or until they are looking golden. Remove from the tray with a spatula and place on the cooling rack. You can eat these bars fresh or place in the freezer to use later on.

Organic Coconut oil

2013-09-16 08.10.532013-09-20 12.20.11

Coconut oil is a must have item in your pantry and can be included in small amounts in your diet each day. The only oils l use in my diet are cold flax oil, extra virgin olive oil and organic coconut oil. These are examples of brands of coconut oil that are available. I have seen many similar ones like the one on the left in the glass jar in the supermarket, health food shops and pharmacies. I bought this one locally for around $6 but most are approximately $10 for a similar size jar. I use a small amount when cooking with the non stick fry pan or when roasting foods in the oven. It adds a lovely flavour to the food. If you are a serious user of coconut oil then the 1.4 Litre tub is an amazing product which l buy online from iherb. It is around $35 for the huge tub which will last a few months. This coconut oil is so creamy and smells delicious. I use this one in my baking such as in chocolate chip cookies and cakes. The one with the blue label is my most recent purchase and comes in a glass jar that l will be able to use in my pantry when it is empty. As soon as the lid is opened the most delicious smell emerges. I purchased it online from Bulk Wholefoods for around $25. Some people eat a spoon of coconut oil straight out of the jar but l am not at that stage just yet!
