  1. Line a baking tray and preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C)*.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a medium bowl. Mix well, then transfer the mixture to the baking tray.
  3. Add another piece of parchment paper on top and roll it flat using a rolling pin. Use your fingers or the back of a spoon to tuck in the sides to create a rectangular shape.
  4. Remove the top parchment paper, and bake in the middle rack of the oven for 18 - 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. When removed from the oven, let it cool completely. It will continue to harden as it cools. When cooled, slice the sesame slab into bite-sized squares. Enjoy!

I was really sceptical if it would stick together but it did! 😃
My family and I love it, so we will make it more often. Much mich better than the store bought ones🫶

PUL Team - Jan. 18, 2024, 6 p.m.

Yayy we're so happy that the sesame snaps are being enjoyed, Isabella! Thank you☺️

Michelle - Aug. 29, 2023, 9:24 p.m.

These are delicious and easy to make. Initially I was worried that I might not have the self control to eat just one portion, but it satisfied my hunger. How is that possible?

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2023, 10:20 p.m.

We're so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Michelle! The combination of nutrient-rich seeds and sugar from the maple syrup and coconut sugar likely contributed to feeling satisfied. The sesame snaps offer of blend of healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates like fibre which helps us feel full 🤗

How easy were these to make!! These are a favourite in our house 💕🤤

Jamie - May 2, 2023, 1:16 p.m.

Love these. Will become a regular coffee break snack!

Ziv - Nov. 7, 2022, 7:03 p.m.

Loved sesame snacks as a kid and this really hit the spot! Much healthier too!

PUL Team - Nov. 8, 2022, 4:16 a.m.

It means so much, Ziv, thank you 😃

Hi PUL! Could you do a savory version of the this recipe??! 😁

PUL Team - Aug. 2, 2022, 5:30 a.m.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jessica, we've noted it down 🙂

Jessica - Aug. 3, 2022, 1:21 a.m.

Thank you! And Congrats on the nuptials ☺️

Hi PUL team,
Can’t wait to make these! Can I substitute the coconut sugar with brown sugar? Also can I add any other seeds, maybe chia seeds?


PUL Team - Dec. 1, 2021, 5:35 a.m.

Hi Nish, thanks for the questions! We haven't tested it out so can't say with confidence. Someone else in the comments tried with regular sugar and didn't have great results. I suspect brown sugar to work better than regular sugar, but it's possible the final result will be a bit wetter as brown sugar tends to hold onto moisture more. I'd also be a little reluctant with adding chia seeds as they are small little guys, and can likely burn in the 18 or so minutes these need to bake in the oven. Flax seeds might work a bit better in this case. Do let us know how it goes if you experiment with this one 😊

Virginie - Oct. 13, 2021, 3:09 a.m.

So delicious, quick and easy! Great snack for the whole family.

Dommeti Ramya - Sept. 26, 2021, 3:46 p.m.

Thank you for the recipe

Merel - Sept. 25, 2021, 7:10 p.m.

Love these, I have made them a couple times already. They are really good, and so easy to make.

Lauren Zvaniga - Aug. 2, 2021, 5:38 a.m.

These are so good and so easy to make. Taste exactly like the sesame snap snacks from the store but better!

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 7:35 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying the sesame snaps, Trish!

Betti - July 23, 2021, 2:35 p.m.

I have tried this receipt and the taste is supergood, but the texture was not ok. What could I do wrong? It was not keeping together the seeds, so it was not crunchy and was falling apart ... thanks for recommendation! Thanks for all these supergood ideas, you really inspire me!

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 7:58 p.m.

Hey Betti, it sounds like perhaps the crackers may need to cool for longer. The crackers tend to harden as they cool so letting them sit for a bit longer before cutting may help. Do let us know if this helps! We're so grateful to have you here 🥰

Elzaan Cook - April 25, 2021, 1:07 p.m.

My kids and I were very satisfied with the result!

CJ - April 13, 2021, 8:19 a.m.

For your recipes, do you use hulled or unhulled sesame seeds?

PUL Team - April 14, 2021, 2:15 a.m.

Hi CJ, that's a great question! It may depend on the recipe but generally you can use either :)

Manon from Vancouver 🌻 - April 12, 2021, 3:30 a.m.

These little treats are such fun to make and have available when you just want a little something sweet. Thanks for sharing. They were easy to make. Love your videos!

PUL Team - April 12, 2021, 6:47 a.m.

So happy to hear, Manon! Sending lots of love to Vancouver 🥰

Lorena - March 29, 2021, 2:23 p.m.

This recipe worked great for me! I only had black sesame seeds on hand, so I substituted those for the white sesame seeds. The snaps came together quickly and turned out crispy & delicious. Thanks for the great recipe!

Sadia - March 29, 2021, 4:04 p.m.

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Lorena 🤗 Thanks for taking the time to share!

Mike - March 22, 2021, 8:45 a.m.

Looks great! Did not have coconut sugar so substituted cane sugar. Was the coconut sugar a vital component? Unfortunately, the mixture did not stick together well.

PUL Team - March 31, 2021, 2:03 p.m.

Hey Mike, apologies this didn't work out for you. Indeed, I think using coconut sugar will yield a different result. Coconut sugar (or at least the one we used) has a very fine consistency, compared to granulated can sugar, which tends to have larger sugar crystals. I think this can affect the way it sticks together. I hope you're able to try again if you acquire some coconut sugar, and that it works out well for you! :)

Lyndsey - July 24, 2022, 3:59 p.m.

You can make these with cane sugar but the method is a little different. Instead of putting it all in the oven you boil the sugar (with a little honey)on the hob like if you were making boiled sweets or peanut brittle. You also dont need the coconut if you use that method. You will get a crunchier snap but maybe a bit less healthy.

PUL Team - July 24, 2022, 6:27 p.m.

Thanks a bunch for the tips, Lyndsey!
