These honey and sesame bites are packed full of energy, minerals and vitamins.
Ingredients
  • 120g toasted sesame seeds
  • 5.5 tbsp or 115ml raw honey
  • unrefined sea salt
Instructions
  1. Heat the honey in a saucepan over a medium heat until it starts to boil.
  2. Add the sesame seeds and a dash of sea salt to the honey and stir using a wooden spoon, cooking slowly and stirring continually for about 10 minutes or until the mixture boils again and caramelizes (turns golden brown), then remove from heat.
  3. Carefully pour the mixture of honey and sesame seeds onto a large piece of baking paper on a smooth surface and smooth out the mixture with a spatula, patting down to a uniform thickness.
  4. Cover the outspread mixture with another large piece of baking paper and use a rolling pin to spread out and thin the mixture some more, to about 1cm thick.
  5. Set aside until the Pasteli is cool enough to handle (but still warm) and cut into equal sized pieces.
  6. Wait until cold before serving.
  7. Uneaten Pasteli bites can be stored in an airtight container with a sheet of baking paper inbetween each layer.
