One of our favourite followers has been asking and asking for a paleo-fied version of the classic sesame snap! So we are mega excited to share our paleo sesame snap recipe with you all! These little sweet snacks featured in our lunchboxes way back when we were little mini-merrymakers in primary school. They were delicious and at the time, merrymaker mum thought they were pretty good for us too! You find them in the health food aisle, they said ‘healthy’, ‘gluten-free’, ‘fat-free’, ‘chlolesterol-free’ (what does that even mean?!) and ‘vegetarian’… all of these titles might have you believe that these packaged goods might actually be good for us!
Sorry to burst your bubble (and ours) but this just isn’t the case. Have no fear though because we are at the ready with a totally healthy, paleo sesame snaps recipe! The best thing is that you can make these up for a week of snacks in less than 15 minutes! What more could you want?! Actually, now that we think of it, how would some paleo chocolate go drizzled on top of these bad boys? Uhh, umm, we think that would go just fine thanks!
