Sesame snaps snack recipe

Oh, sweet tasty sesame snaps, how I love you. This more-ish snack for the adults has quickly became a crunchy snack favoured by the kids in our home. Here’s how easy it is to make these lip-smacking good snacks yourself!

My youngest calls them birdseed crackers and if you really don’t want to share, this could be the out you need – though you run the risk of your kids never eating anything laced with sesame seeds – your call. A disclaimer, stopping at one shard is near impossible so they don’t hang around for long.



1 cup sesame seeds
½ cup sugar
2 tbsp honey



  • Set yourself up with a flat baking tray, two sheets of greased baking paper and a rolling pin. Set aside.


  • Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over medium heat until golden in colour. Keep them moving and watch they don’t burn. Remove from the pan to a plate.


  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar and honey. Melt over medium heat and bring to a boil. Let it boil for two minutes and then remove from heat.


  • Working quickly, add the sesame seeds to the sugar mix and stir until all combined and pour it onto the baking paper lined tray.


  • Cover with the other sheet of baking paper and roll with a rolling pin to the desired thickness. The thinner it is, the more it will shatter when being cut.


  • Allow the sesame mix to cool slightly before cutting. Once it has cooled completely, dig in!
