  • Bowl


  • ½ cup Almonds raw
  • ½ cup Cashew raw
  • ¼ cup Sunflower seeds raw
  • ¼ cup Sesame seeds raw
  • teaspoon Paprika
  • cup Dessicated Coconut (shredded coconut)
  • ¼ cup Maple syrup


  • In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix through, thoroughly coating all nuts and seeds with maple syrup.
    ½ cup Almonds, ½ cup Cashew, ¼ cup Sunflower seeds, ¼ cup Sesame seeds, ⅛ teaspoon Paprika, ⅛ cup Dessicated Coconut, ¼ cup Maple syrup
  • Transfer and flatten the nut mixture into a lined baking tray, ensure the nuts are not overlapping much. Bake in a preheated oven 150C (300F) for 30 minutes. 
  • Allow the tray to fully cool down to room temperature (about 20-30 minutes), then break the nut bar into clusters. Store in an air-tight container.



This vegan seeds and nuts cluster recipe will yield 300g once baked.
The nuts covered in maple syrup will bake into a reddish golden colour.
Cooling is important - when the baking time is over, the nuts will still be a little soft. As the nuts cool down to room temperature, they will harden into one solid sheet of nut bar. Use your hands to break off desired size pieces.
A 18x27cm (7”x10½”) baking tray was used to bake these. Use a similar sized tray if possible.
🍴Serving Suggestion
Crunchy nut clusters are awesome on their own or with a nice cup of herbal tea, energy boosting moringa latte or a dalgona coffee.
Or enjoy them with natural vegan yoghurt, and fresh fruit. A great way to start the day or as an afternoon snack to help with 3.30itis.
