I absolutely love these vegan sesame snaps!! Sesame snaps were always a snack that I enjoyed as a kid. Most sesame snap recipes have honey in them, so for those who prefer a honey free option, this is your recipe!!!
You’ll love this recipe because it’s super healthy!! The sesame seeds, pecans, and maple syrup all have a wide variety of essential minerals. Calcium is often a mineral that can be lacking on a vegan diet, and this fun little snack is packed with calcium.
This recipe is a spin on traditional sesame snaps. My mom made these for me a few months ago and she brilliantly added pecans. So I took her recipe and came up with the measurements to make this special treat. Maple and pecans are a match made in heaven in case you aren’t aware. The toasted pecans and sesame seeds combined with maple syrup, cinnamon, and sea salt, is absolutely to die for!
Vegan Sesame Snaps with Pecans
These delicious sesame snaps are vegan and so healthy! They’re filled with minerals and you’ll love the taste of this sweet and salty treat!
- 1 cup white sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup pecans (chopped)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
Line an 8×8 inch square pan with parchment paper and set aside.
Heat a large non-stick pan. Add the sesame seeds and pecans to the pan and toast them until fragrant on medium/high heat. This will take around 5 minutes. Stir frequently and be careful not to burn it!
Add the maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt to the pan and stir the mixture until it’s well combined.
Transfer the mixture to the lined pan and spread it out evenly and press it down.
Transfer the pan to the freezer and freeze it for around 20 minutes. Check on it after 20 minutes. If it still seems a bit soft, return it to the freezer to chill for a few additional minutes.
When it’s firm enough, lift the parchment paper out of the pan. Use a sharp knife to slice it into squares.
Serve immediately or store in the fridge until serving.
