  1. Toast the sesame and sunflower seeds in a dry, heavy skillet over medium heat until light brown and fragrant. Sesame seeds should crumble easily when rubbed between your fingers.
  2. Heat honey and peanut butter in a saucepan over low heat until warm; stir in the toasted seeds and flax seeds. Line an 11 x 7 inch dish with plastic wrap. Press the mixture into the bottom of the lined dish; allow to cool completely. Cut into 2-inch squares to serve.

Loved it! I used a 9x9 pan, and it was perfect for me. I got 16 bars out of it. Hubby and I ate them ALL that evening. They were so good and so much more healthy, fast, and filling than cookies. I added about 2 T of chia seeds. Totally going to do it again. I can't wait to add variations as the other reviewers have mention. These will be a great hit with the family!

Shared with co-workers(all women)all enjoyed. Husband not impressed! Husbands buddy and wife very impressed!-only downside-not for peanut allergy. I may try some without peanut butter.

This recipe is awesome! I followed the ingredients exactly as written, however I put it into a slightly smaller pan which I'm glad I did. You don't really taste the peanut butter alot - as my PB hating daughter can attest. Will be adding this to my recipe book. Might try adding in some pumpkin seeds too.

I added a tsp of vanilla and a tbsp cinnamon. I thought that it made the peanut butter mixture so so yummy. However, only 4 stars because I definitely didn't get 20 bars, and the pan size was way too big.

Quick and easy to make. I used the recommeded 11X7 pan and they came out a bit thin for my liking. Think I will use a smaller pan next time or double the recipe.

These are fantastic. Can't stop eating them. Must store in the fridge though....or they're too soft.

Delicious. The peanut butter and honey are great with anything you may substitue. I left out the sesame and used crushed cashew and a little coconut. I don't like flax seeds, they stick in your teeth.

Love these. I had no flax seed so I substituted with sliced Almonds. Just the perfect snack. Filling, tasty and so good for you.
