Scrap the packaged and processed snack bars and make your own. These bars are packed with nutritious hemp seeds – a great source source of polyunsaturated and essential fatty acids, with an approximately 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3, which is considered in the optimal range. 

Tahini is also a nutritional powerhouse, being high in vitamins E, F and T, as well as vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B15, biotin, and choline. It is also a source of vitamin A. Tahini is also 20 percent complete protein – making it a richer protein source than milk, soya beans, sunflower seeds, and most nuts.

    1. Place tahini, rice malt syrup and vanilla in a small saucepan on low heat, whisk until it comes together forming a thick liquid. Don’t leave on too long or it may separate and become crumby.
    2. Combine half the hemp seeds, half the sesame seeds and all the rice puffs (or buckinis, see note) in a bowl, then pour over the tahini mix.
    3. Bring the mix together using your hands, then press into a small loaf tin (you can use a standard loaf tin of course it will simply be a thinner bar).
    4. Sprinkle remaining hemp and sesame seeds over the top and press down.
    5. Cover and place in freezer to set for 2 hours. Slice and serve from freezer. Store in fridge or freezer up to 2 weeks.
