Ingredients

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Greek Honey
  • 3 cups sesame seeds, raw
  • 1 cup almonds or pistachios
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ​optional: orange zest, 1-2 tablespoons orange juice, cardamom seeds, vanilla extract

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, 177 degrees Celsius.

2

​Spread out the sesame seeds and almonds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the preheated oven to toast.

3

​Toast them for 5-7 minutes on the middle rack.

4

​While the seeds and nuts are toasting, zest the orange and set the zest aside.

5

​Place the honey, salt, and orange juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil.

6

Reduce the heat and cook the sweet mixture about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

7

​Chop the toasted almonds into small to medium sized pieces.

8

​Carefully pour the toasted seeds and chopped almonds into the honey mixture along with the orange zest.

9

Mix everything very well, off the heat, until combined.

10

​Pour the mixture onto a baking dish/pan lined with parchment paper and spread it evenly. Brushing the spatula with olive oil will make it easier to spread the candy mixture.

11

​If you like this dessert thick, use an 8x8 inch baking dish lined with parchment paper.

12

​If you like thinner bars, spread the mixture onto a half sheet baking tray lined with parchment paper or a 9x 13 inch baking dish.

13

​Allow to come to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator for a few hours to harden.

14

Cut it in your preferred size and shape.

15

​Enjoy!
