Preparation time: 15 min
Cooking time: 20 min


  • 1/3
    roughly chopped almonds
  • 1/3
    pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3
    sunflower seeds
  • 2
    white sesame seeds
  • 1
    black sesame seeds
  • 3
  • 2
  • several apples, honey crunch or fuji are really good
  • nut butter of your choice, almond or peanut butter



Preheat the oven to 170º C.

Line a tray  baking tray with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients, except the apples of course. It’s best to do this by hand to ensure the nuts and seeds are well coated. Spread the mixture out onto the tray and roast for 15-20 minutes, turning at 5 minute intervals to prevent catching. Set aside to cool completely and crisp up.

To make the apple doughnuts, core the apples and slice into 1cm rounds. Spread the tops with almond butter and press face down into the tahini nut crumble. Serve with fresh fruit and Greek yoghurt for a supremely delicious and healthy breakfast or snack.
